How much does it add to my electric bill to run my furnace fan all the time?

Furnace Blower


Depends on the size of the blower and the cost of electricity.

Furnace Blower


"Currently, total electricity consumption of furnaces is unregulated, tested at laboratory
conditions using the DOE test procedure, and is reported in the GAMA directory as varying from
76 kWh/year to 1,953 kWh/year. Furnace blowers account for about 80% of the total furnace
electricity consumption. . ."
