Thermostat AC Cycle Time Question...

So I have been playing with my thermostat "cycle" length settings. The dial under the lid has numbers ranging from .2 to 1.3 - which setting will give me the best performance? I have looked all over and can't get a good explanation of how the cycle time affects cooling

The lower setting will reduce the cycle time. It corresponds to ampere draw.

The heat anticipator does not control cooling.
If you set it too low, and call for heat, you can damage your stat.
