FAQs

In the winter, should I leave my furnace fan on automatic?

The fan setting on your thermostat controls the blower in your HVAC system. Until the desired temperature control setting is reached, the blower helps circulate warm or cold air throughout your home. When the switch is in the ON position, the fan keeps running even after the desired temperature has been reached. How, then, are you to determine which setting is most effective for you during the wintertime? In all fairness, this varies depending on the specific requirements you have as a house owner. So, let’s take a closer look at how you might choose the setting that works the best.

Setting your thermostat to ON will help you distribute the air in your house at all times, which may help you manage your allergy symptoms if you and your family suffer from them.

Here are some further advantages to having your fan set to ON as compared to having it on AUTO:

  • When you want to maintain a constant temperature in your home, you should use the ON setting. Perhaps you’d prefer a better balance between the warmer air in the rooms upstairs and the cooler air in your basement. An ongoing fan can be helpful here.
  • If you utilize an air filter that is reasonably efficient and keep your windows closed, your home’s filtration system will ensure that the air inside is clean and free of harmful particles.
  • Your AC fan will operate less frequently when your thermostat is set to ON, which may help to lengthen its life expectancy.

Furthermore, here are some disadvantages associated with having your furnace fan switched to ON during the day:

  • The cost of operating the fan continuously may increase slightly, which means you’ll have to pay more each month to heat your home.
  • Your HVAC filters may need to be changed more frequently.
  • The fan may misfire more frequently since it runs continuously.

If costs are a concern, in contrast, you might want to use the auto setting so that your furnace shuts off when it is not in use. As you can see, both settings provide homeowners with benefits when it comes to heating their homes and maintaining healthy air quality throughout each room.

As such, here are some advantages of having your furnace fan set to AUTO during the wintertime in Ontario:

  • Reduces your monthly energy costs and energy consumption.
  • Your furnace air filters won’t have to be cleaned or replaced as frequently.
  • By setting a temperature threshold, you can control when the fan starts and stops giving you more control over your HVAC system.

In contrast, here are some of the disadvantages associated with having your furnace fan switched to AUTO during the winter:

  • Your home’s distribution of air supply isn’t uniform; it can lead to warm and cold patches.
  • Your home’s quality of indoor air might not be as pure and clear as it would be when switched to the ON setting.

Do you still have specific questions about what fan setting would be most suitable for your requirements during the winter? No need to be concerned—the staff at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning is here to help! Anytime you’d like, just give one of our helpful members of the team a call, and they’ll be happy to help you choose the best setting for your needs.

Is the thermostat supposed to be on or off?

A thermostat regulates a building’s temperature by turning on and off the heating and cooling systems as needed. The thermostat should be set to the preferred temperature and left on in order to preserve a comfortable temperature in a house or office. In order to maintain the desired temperature, the heating or cooling system can then be turned on and off as necessary. The thermostat must be turned off if you want to completely turn off the heating or cooling system. In this scenario, your home’s indoor temperature will not be regulated and will instead be influenced by the weather outside.

 As such, in order to determine which setting is best for you and your family, it really comes down to what your personal thermal needs are. Are there any unique queries regarding the thermostat setting that would best meet your needs in the cold season? There’s no need to worry because Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning staff is on hand to assist!

Is it preferable to keep every vent open in the winter?

Believe it or not, blocking the vents in empty rooms will do more harm than good when it comes to heating your house. It’s crucial to leave the airflow clear throughout every room of your home to conserve energy since heating and cooling account for quite a bit of your monthly electricity costs. To make sure that the air is flowing through your home correctly, you may also wish to have your furnace or air ducts cleaned by a professional HVAC company as well. Generally speaking, we recommend that homeowners book a professional air duct cleaning appointment once every two years. This will help ensure that your ductwork is free of any dust, hair, dirt, and other debris that could be causing blockages and, in turn, will ensure that you are able to properly heat your home during the winter without using massive amounts of energy. As such, you can save money on your heating costs as well!

When was the last time you had your home’s air ductwork professionally cleaned by an HVAC company? If you can’t remember or it has been over two years since your last appointment, we recommend booking an appointment with the professional and experienced HVAC team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning today!

Does my furnace‘s fan use a lot of electricity when it’s running?

The blower in your furnace system is managed by the fan setting on your thermostat. The blower assists in distributing warm or cold air throughout your home until the preferred climate control setting is attained. The fan continues to run when the switch is in the ON position, even after the desired temperature has been established. Because of this, there are some disadvantages associated with doing so.

Here is a closer look at some of these disadvantages in more detail:

  • The cost of operating the fan continuously may increase slightly, which means you’ll have to pay more each month to heat your home.
  • Your HVAC filters may need to be changed more frequently.
  • The fan may misfire more frequently since it runs continuously.

As you can see, having your furnace fan on constantly will end up costing you more money on your monthly energy bill. Therefore, if you are looking to save money, you also have the option of switching your thermostat to an AUTO setting. By doing this your furnace will shut off when it is not in use.

Therefore, deciding which setting is best for you and your family really depends on your individual thermal requirements. Do you have any specific questions about what thermostat setting would best suit your needs during the cold season? The staff at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning is here to help, so don’t worry! Call one of our helpful staff members whenever you’d like, and they’ll be happy to help you choose the best setting for your needs.
