Does the Air Conditioner Turn off Due to the Temperature?

For example, if you’re doing 12oC on the street, it should be about that temperature inside the house, right? Therefore, some people think that if you turn on the air conditioner at 17oC, it will not turn on, because the temperature is already lower.

Similarly, if you’re doing 28oC on a given day, and you turn on the air conditioner at 25oC, there are those who think the device won’t work because the temperature is already higher than the one on the device. Okay, these are weird situations, but it’s a valid doubt, and it’s not stupid to think like that.


Understand Cycle Time of Air Conditioners

What’s really going on

What's really going on

First of all, it should be noted that there is a Cold and Hot/Cold air conditioner. That is the guy who only releases cold air and the guy who releases both hot and cold air to condition the room.


Consider Hot/Cold Air Conditioning, in this case:

Air conditioning temperatures are not divided into hot and cooling temperatures. The temperature that the consumer chooses in the equipment is the temperature that the device will try to reach, regardless of whether the ambient temperature is lower or higher.

But watch out! You must put the air conditioner in the right mode. “Heating mode” or “Heat” to release hot air, and “Cooling mode” or “Cold” to release cold air.

Done: If you set 17oC on your device, this is the temperature at which the environment will acclimatize, regardless of whether it is colder or hotter than this in the room. If you order the device at 17oC and are doing 12oC in the room, the air conditioner will release hot air until it adapts to the selected temperature – remember to put it in heating mode (heat).

If you are, for example, at 28oC in the room and order 25oC, the air conditioner will release cold air to reach this air conditioner – in this case, putting it in cooling mode (cold).


What about Cold Cycle Air?

In this case, the device does not produce hot air, so if the environment is cooler than the chosen temperature, it is likely that the air conditioner will not be able to air conditioning the environment as desired. This happens because it will only release the air at room temperature, without cooling it first.

But for higher temperatures, the rule remains applicable. If it’s about 28oC and you set up 25oC, the air conditioner will release cold air until you get there.


Yes, but does the air conditioner turn off or not?

If your device does not have Inverter technology, which keeps the condenser motor running all the time, yes, the air conditioner disconnects most of its functions when it reaches the desired temperature. It shuts down for a while, and when the thermostat notices that the temperature has changed again, it starts the engines again so that the equipment can regulate the air conditioning of the environment again.


What temperature does the thermostat measure?

The thermostat measures the ambient temperature, i.e. the temperature of the internal room where the evaporator is installed. Wi-Fi devices already exist that measure external temperature, through a thermostat in the condenser. These new devices seek to learn consumer preferences by reading the time on the street and programming the device settings for the user.
