Hundreds of furnaces across the Chicagoland area are way too big for the homes that they are installed in. How did this happen? Well, there are two possibilities: either the furnace was installed back when the motto, “Bigger is better” rung true, or the installer decided to take you for a ride by selling you a larger and therefore more expensive unit. No matter your situation, having a furnace in the home that is bigger than needed has probably already caused you problems. The only way to repair this problem is to either expand the size of your home or get a new unit, but how are you going to know if your furnace is over sized in the first place? Leave it to Four Seasons.

Trademark Symptoms of an Oversized Furnace
Not sure if you should call? Well, there are a few typical signs and symptoms you should look for that may signal a furnace sizing problem. Short cycling is a big one! The furnace will only run for a few minutes at a time, and there will also be a huge temperature swing in between cycles. That means that the temperature will jump from very warm when the unit is on to very cold when it is in between cycles. These are just a few of the trademark symptoms of an over sized furnace. For a full assessment of your system, call Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning.
