Reasons Your Furnace Keeps Kicking On and Off

Monday, February 6th, 2023

One of the most common troubles that homeowners run into with their heating during the winter is a furnace that keeps turning on and off rapidly, going through what’s known as “short-cycling.” 

The standard heating cycle for a furnace is at least 15 minutes and often not much longer than 20. This is the amount of time necessary for the furnace’s components to work together to heat air, send it through the ventilation system, and raise the home’s temperature to the target on the thermostat.

When you’re home during a cold day, you can expect to hear your furnace kick on and then run for 10–15 minutes or more before shutting off. Your house will retain enough heat for the furnace to remain off for about the same amount of time before coming back on. On an average winter day, you can expect the furnace to go through three heating cycles per hour.
