Signs You’re Overworking Your Heating System

As the temperature cools down, your furnace will start getting a good workout. While you want your heating system to be hardworking and dependable, you don’t want it to work too hard. In addition to being less effective at warming up your home, overworked systems use more energy and drive up energy costs.

If you notice any of the following signs, there’s a good chance your furnace is working too hard.

Frequent Repairs

If it feels like you practically have your HVAC technician on speed dial, your heating system may be overworked. This is because your unit’s components will wear out faster when they’re working harder than usual. Overheating, airflow problems, and control-related issues are all common consequences of an overworked furnace.

Climbing Energy Bills

It’s normal for your energy bills to rise during cooler months, but a steady increase beyond what’s normal is a big red flag. The harder your furnace works, the more energy it consumes to meet your heating needs. This spike in energy consumption can lead to a dramatic increase in your utility bills.

Struggling to Keep Your Home Warm

Are you constantly turning up the temperature on your thermostat? Does your house feel cold no matter what? If your heater is struggling to keep up with the desired temperature, it may need repairs or even a replacement. You may notice that your heater is running nonstop, which is a sure sign that it’s being overworked.
