How to Fix Furnace Short Cycling

Furnace short cycling is one of the worst things that can happen to a house, if it happens often. It causes all sorts of problems that may be hard to solve or expensive to fix. This article will give you tips on how to resolve furnace short cycling.

If your furnace is being short cycled, the first thing you need to do is turn off the air conditioning and unplug the unit. The moment the air conditioner is switched off, the furnace should start producing a lot of heat, but the problem is that it will eventually stop again, even if the temperature inside your house hasn’t changed. You should also check your home venting system for cracks in the wiring, as these are the main reasons for furnace short cycling. If there is a problem with the wiring, it means that you will have to hire someone to fix it for you.

After you turn off the air conditioner, you need to unplug the furnace. Then you can open the fuses located at the back of the fuse box and cut the power to the furnace. It is also a good idea to close the venting ducts at the back of the house and plug the furnace into a good rated outlet, so you won’t burn out the furnace. This should solve the problem in less than an hour. You can test your thermostat to see if it is set properly, as some problems with the furnace short cycling are related to that.
