You deserve comfort and easy and accessible comfort. If you’re struggling to get warm, we’re the ones who can help you out with this. Below, we’ll get into some potential issues that could be causing this problem. 

What’s Causing Your Furnace Problem?

You’ve noticed that you’re not warm enough because your furnace isn’t running in complete cycles, then you might be dealing with the following furnace issues.

An Incorrectly Sized Furnace

Sometimes the problem that you’re dealing with started back when your heater was installed but it’s just now rearing its ugly head. This is why it’s so important to have a load calculation conducted before you even have your heater installed. If your furnace is oversized or undersized for the needs of your home, you might notice your system running in incomplete cycles. Short cycling is an oversized furnace issue. If you notice your furnace start, run for a while, stop, and then start again, you might want to consider having a professional assess your needs.

Poor Airflow

Poor airflow is something that can really wear your heating system down. A couple of different things can contribute to this problem. If you have a clogged furnace filter, a problem with an important part of your blower like a malfunctioning blower fan, or several of the vents around your home are blocked, then you might notice poor airflow. Start by replacing your furnace filter and clearing the vents in your home. If this isn’t enough, it’s time to come to our professionals to examine your blower fan.

Troubles with Your Flame Sensor

If you’re having consistent trouble with your furnace, it’s always worthwhile to take a peek in on your furnace system with the help of a professional. A healthy furnace is going to have a flame that’s steady, bright, and blue. If your furnace flame is another color like red, orange, or yellow, then it might not have the power it needs to properly address your home’s needs.

A Bad Thermostat

We always say that your thermostat is the leader of the pack when it comes to your home’s heating system. A bad thermostat means that your furnace won’t be able to function properly. If your thermostat is outdated or even miscalibrated, it’s not going to be able to trigger your heating system properly. This is when you might notice your furnace running in incomplete cycles.
