Summer is coming here in Miami. Marine Airrr unit maybe 2009 vintage with digital control on a sailboat.

The question I have is whether it is better to have the unit running constantly or allowing it to cycle on and off.

The temp in the cabin now is 77 degrees, in a few minutes, say 3 to 5, the temp will rise to 79 and then the unit starts, cools us down to 77 say i 5 to 8 minutes then the unit shuts off, and repeats.

Is that harder on the unit, this on and off cycling, our should I set temp lower and let the unit run longer or nearly continually?

 

Thanks,
