Is It Bad to Run My Heating System 24/7?

When the colder months hit, do you run your heating system all the time or set your thermostat and allow your system to turn on and off to regulate the temperature? Both are effective ways of keeping your home comfortable, but let’s take a look specifically at running a heating system non-stop throughout the season.

If you need professionals to service your furnace or heating system, KW Lang Mechanical in Solon, Ohio, can handle your needs. The following are answers to questions you might have when deciding whether or not to run their heating systems all the time.

Does Constantly Running a Heating System Cause Excessive Wear and Tear?

While running your heating system continuously might seem like a lot of work, they’re designed to handle that type of workload.

Also, when you’re not running your system all the time, you’re forcing your furnace and the rest of your system to power up and power down many times throughout a day. This makes your system work just as hard, if not harder, than running it 24/7.

Will It Cost More to Run It Continuously?

It may cost more, but ultimately, it depends on how efficient your heating system is. Some high-efficiency furnaces and heating systems don’t expend much energy by powering the fan all the time.

There are some cases where running your heating system all the time can keep your home warmer for longer, which will spare your furnace and save you on energy costs in the long run. However, this isn’t always the case.

Are There Any Benefits to Running It All the Time?

Running your heating system non-stop can offer some noticeable benefits, like circulating air more effectively to eliminate cold spots, evenly heat two-story homes and create better air quality by pushing more air through your furnace filter.
