Happy Harold’s Answer To Zack:
I’m excited to receive your question and would be thrilled to answer it!
There are many reasons why your furnace may seem like it’s consistently running and never shuts off. As soon as most people look at their monthly statements and see how much heating their home is costing them each month, it becomes pretty literal very quickly. Chances are your current furnace wasn’t installed properly or isn’t operating the way it should be. We understand most people can’t afford to dish our huge amounts of money and try to look for the cheapest route possible. But like the old saying goes “cheap work produces cheap results”. If you take a look at the energy.gov website. Gas furnaces’ use up about 49% of your total house hold energy compared to any other piece of equipment. Which is why it’s crucial that you pay extra special attention to it. In the long run when your saving substantial sums of money each month on your energy bills, you’ll be thankful that you called a reputable heating and cooling contractor that won’t cut costs and leave you with poor craftsmanship.

If your furnace never shuts off, your bills are expensive, and your house is always cold, than chances are it’s never been able to reach the set temperature because it’s shutting off on some form a fault.
Today’s high efficiency furnaces are designed to run the blower motor which is the louder motor during the fault. So you may think the furnace is actually heating, but it’s really not. All that is actually happening is the blower motor is running, which will help keep the air in the house more even but it wont actually heat the house, which is why furnace maintenance is so important.
