7 Reasons Your Furnace is Running Constantly
A constantly running furnace can be annoying and a waste of money. If your furnace is set to AUTO mode, it should cycle on and off as needed to maintain the temperature you set on your thermostat.
So why is your furnace running constantly? Here are 7 potential reasons:
Your furnace filter is dirty.
If your furnace is running constantly, the first thing you should check is the furnace filter. A dirty filter can restrict airflow and cause your furnace to work harder than it needs to, leading to a decrease in efficiency and an increase in your energy bills.
It’s important to check the filter monthly and replace it as needed; we recommend replacing it at least once every 3 months.
The vents in your home are blocked.
Vents that are blocked by furniture or other objects can restrict airflow and cause your furnace to run constantly. Make sure all of the vents in your home are clear so that air can circulate freely.
Your furnace is the wrong size for your home.
If your furnace is too small for your home, it will have to work overtime to heat your entire space, which can lead to premature wear and tear as well as high energy bills. Be sure to consult with a professional before purchasing a new furnace so you can get one that’s properly sized for your home’s heating needs.
This is a common problem in older homes that have been renovated without taking the HVAC system into account. If you think this might be the problem, we recommend calling a professional HVAC contractor to come out and take a look and perform heating repair Yukon OK if necessary.
Leaks, cracks, and gaps in the ductwork
Leaky homes can also cause furnaces to run constantly. When heat escapes through these gaps, the furnace has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature, which can cause it to run constantly, leading to increased wear and tear as well as higher energy bills.
Be sure to check your home’s insulation and seal any gaps or cracks in the air ducts or where the air is coming from.
Excessive moisture in the air
When there’s too much moisture in the air, it can cause condensation on the evaporator coil, which inhibits heat transfer and makes the furnace work harder than it needs to.
To avoid this issue, use a dehumidifier in your home and/or open up windows when weather permits to let fresh air in and help reduce humidity levels.
The thermostat is not calibrated correctly.
Thermostats are important for regulating the temperature in your home, and if they aren’t calibrated correctly, it can cause your furnace to run constantly and increase your energy costs.
If you’re having this problem, be sure to call a technician to help calibrate your thermostat so that you can save on your energy bills.
There is something wrong with the furnace itself.
If you have an older model furnace, it may simply be overdue for replacement. Over time, furnaces will start to wear down and become less efficient. If yours has been in use for 10 to 15 years or more, it may simply need replaced with a newer model.
By understanding the root cause of the problem, you can take steps to fix it and prevent it from happening again in the future.
