Hope this is in the correct thread.
I have noticed that my heater will run for an hour to an hour and a half while putting out very little heat. However, if I were to turn the thermostat up a few degrees more heat will start to come out of the vents and get to the desired temperature more quickly, in a about 10-15 minutes. I will then turn the thermostat back down to my desired temperature in my house, 70° and wait till the next time the heater turns on and repeat the process.
Is it more economical to adjust the thermostat to have the heater run at “full strength” for a shorter amount of time or set the thermostat to a constant temperature where the heater runs for a much longer time while putting out less heat?
Thank you, in advance, for your response.
