Does something seem off when you are heating your home? Does your heater seem to start up at an appropriate time when temperatures in your home get chilly, but then it runs only very briefly once it’s started up? Does it then start right back up after it’s cycled off?
This is called short cycling, and it’s one of those heating issues that could have any number of potential causes.
Worse yet, some causes are simple to fix—others have serious implications for the heater in question.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though.
First, let’s acknowledge the fact that no, your heater is not supposed to be running around the clock. This doesn’t mean, though, that your heater rapidly cycling is performing as it should. If it seems to you like your heater is not running in full, regular cycles, definitely reach out to a member of our team.
