Why is my heat cycling?

Istock 1063774404 1024x683 1

If you can hear your furnace turning off and on constantly and you’ve noticed your energy bill creeping up, you’ve probably fallen victim to short cycling. There are a few main reasons why your system is cycling.

Dirty Air Filters

This is the most common cause of short cycling. A dirty filter restricts air flow from reaching your furnace’s heat exchanger. This can cause your furnace to overheat and shut down. It will begin turning off and on in response to the lack of air.

Incorrectly placed Thermostat

If your thermostat is too close to a heat source, it will respond to the temperature and turn off the furnace and then turn it back on when it realizes the room is cool. Your thermostat needs to be near an area that correctly represents the temperature of the room.

Blocked Vents

Blocked exhaust vents can be blocked by debris from outside. If an animal decides to make a nest in your vent, gases will build up causing your furnace to overheat and shut down. Make sure to shut off your furnace before you shine a flashlight into your exhaust vent to see if any critters have made a new home.

If you’re not sure where to find your furnace exhaust vents, or you find something obstructing your vents, call a professional like Drake Heating & Cooling at (937) 472-0640 for help.

As a first time home owner I had no clue what Kevin was talking about but he took the time to explain everything and show me what was wrong. When we were going over the paperwork he wasn’t pushy about using his service but explained why it was a good idea to get the furnace replaced and the advantages of going with drake
