If you’re in the market for a new furnace system this fall, you’re probably comparing about a dozen different qualities for the ones you’re looking at. When you do finally select a furnace for your home, don’t forget to make sure it’s properly sized! The size of the furnace has a huge impact on its efficiency, as well as the amount of return on investment that you’re going to get out of it. Read on to find out what can happen if your furnace is the wrong size for your home.

Oversized

If a furnace is too large for your home, it will put out so much heat that the thermostat will shut it down before it has a chance to complete a full heating cycle. This problem is called short cycling and it is extremely damaging to the system. The various parts that make up the furnace will wear out faster and begin to break down. The system will not be able to heat the home effectively, and will have its overall lifespan shortened by a number of years.

Undersized

An undersized furnace will not be able to produce enough output to properly heat the home in which it is installed. This will force it to operate for much longer than it was designed to, which leads to the same general consequences as if the furnace were too large. The system will wear down much faster than it is supposed to, and will need to be replaced years ahead of when it otherwise would be. This is why you need to make absolutely sure that your furnace is properly sized when installing it.
