This indicates that the the single stage was initiating a response to the control component temperature. The power consumption is the same every time as a result to the air conditioning or heating component turning on. The multistage systems have a small and gradual approach. Multistage Heating and Air Conditioning units can have power levels that are initiated depending on the needs of the area you’re trying to cool or heat. It might also depend on the difference in the ambient temperature plus the desired temperature of the room.
