Oversized Furnace Causes Short Cycling
Installing an oversized furnace in your home can lead to a number of problems, with short cycling being at the top of the list.
A common held belief amongst homeowners is that the bigger the furnace, the better it will perform. The truth is that this is simply not the case. An oversized furnace can be the source of many of your HVAC problems, such as a loud air conditioner or a substantial increase on your utility bills. Problems such as these are a very clear indication that it is time to replace your trouble causing oversized furnace with brand new furnace that is perfect for your home.
A furnace that is too large for the home operates with exceptionally fast heating cycles. Fast heating cycles make for an overwhelming amount of wear and tear on the heating equipment, and thus often results in furnace breakdowns. This happens because the set temperature is reached very quickly, and the furnace then shuts off. Because the heating components are significantly increased, constant maintenance and repairs will become necessary. Switching from your currently oversized furnace to a new one that fits your home will ensure that the system operates efficiently and will increase the lifespan of your heating system.
When your heating system is forced to constantly start and stop because of an oversized furnace, you end up wasting both fuel and money on your utility bill. An oversized furnace is unable to operate at its peak efficiency level and results in tons of wasted energy. The only way to fix such a problem is to get rid of the oversized unit as a whole and have a trained technician install a brand new furnace unit. When heating your home, an oversized furnace only reaches a steady temperature by the time that your home is already heated to your preferred temperature, so most of its operating is done in the warm up stage.
An oversized furnace system makes it so that heat only comes in through the vents for short periods of time, which results in a room either feeling to cold or too hot during the heating process. One room in your home may feel warm, while others don’t receive the same amount of heat. The furnace may seem like it never runs long enough to properly heat your home. A resolution to this problem is to have a professional to calculate your current heating space which will guarantee that your new furnace will be properly sized and fulfill your heating expectations. If incorrect calculations are made then the BTU capacity rating and IFUE efficiency rating will also be inaccurate, so the goal of a properly sized furnace will not be met.
