Question about Heating & Cooling
This could be normal. Depending on the installation some units will have a time delay for start up. They have the delay to prevent a quick restart.
For example if the compressor is running and turned off then immediately turned back on the current draw would be so high it would trip the breaker or overload the compressor. When a compressor turns off it needs time for the system pressure to equalize.
Most systems use some type of time delay, either built into the thermostat or into the contactor on the outside unit.
Let me know if you have questions.
