2.5-3.5hrs/day (4hrs on Wednesday when it got down to -13°C)
Single stage "high efficiency" furnace, though I don't know the BTU rating.

Why are you trying to make your furnace run continuously?1chinaman wrote: ↑This past January, 12hrs on cold cold days. Maybe 8hrs average as per ecobee.
Run time should be even longer now since I broke down and bought the communicating thermostat now
Hopefully I can get to run non stop on the cold days but likely it won’t as it’s oversized because they don’t make modulating furnaces smaller than 60kB4768990-60C8-4BA3-89C4-E1025E4FC054.jpeg4643FCED-AA54-4CD9-9111-F1F3980D6AEC.jpeg

If you really want to know if your windows are crap, or what else is wrong, then get a thermal imaging camera. You won't be guessing anymore... Over time it will pay for itself.chimaican wrote: ↑ How long your furnace runs will be dependent location, outdoor temperature, indoor comfort settings, size of home, size of furnace, type of furnace, insulation (both walls & attic), windows, air leakage, time settings.... Not sure how anyone's particular answer is going to help OP with a comparison.
For example, got a 2400 sqft 2 story (2005) with someone home all hours of day, set at 20.5C from 730am to 11pm, and 18 at night. Attic insulation has been beefed up to around R60. Windows are crap, and I'm sure I got air leakage all over. Current daytime high is 6, but over the last month, running between 3-4hrs. Yesterday only ran 2.5hrs, but has run as long as almost 5hrs during last week'a frigid GTA weather.
