One of the most common furnace issues many homeowners run into this time of year? Short-cycling, which is when the furnace starts and stops too quickly and far too often. This issue is actually more common with air conditioners but can happen to furnaces as well. Let’s look at some reasons why it happens, and what you can do about it.
There are a couple common reasons why furnace short-cycling takes place:
The furnace takes all its orders from the thermostat, and a malfunctioning thermostat can be another source of short-cycling in the furnace – or other issues, such as a furnace that won’t turn off at all. Even if the thermostat is fine, it can cause short-cycling if it’s installed near a major heat source like a stove or a sun-facing window – these can trick it into thinking the home is too hot, leading to short-cycling.
