Signs You’re Overworking Your Heating System

October 21, 2019

When the temperatures outside start to get cold, it’s important to have a reliable heating system. If you’re overworking your heater, it could lead to a variety of issues. There are things you can look for that could indicate when there is something wrong.

Frequent Cycling

If you’ve noticed that your heater is cycling on and off frequently, it might be because it’s being overworked. When your heater turns on and off often, it’s putting excessive stress on all the parts.

Increased Energy Bills

A heater that is working too hard won’t be able to function efficiently. This can be detected in increasing energy bills. If you’re noticing that your winter energy bills are higher than normal or are increasing for no reason, an overworked heater might be to blame.

Poor Reliability

When a heater is being overworked, it has a much greater chance of breaking down. If you feel like you’re having to perform repairs more often than is normal, it might be because your heating system is trying to do too much. When there is too much stress on a system, parts can fail more frequently. If your system fails frequently, you can end up having to schedule a furnace replacement.

Uneven Heating

A heater that is too small for your home and is being overworked might not be able to keep each room in your home at an even and comfortable temperature. If you’re noticing that some rooms aren’t getting as warm as others, it might be because of an undersized heater.
