Check Your Thermostat
You may have adjusted your thermostat at the end or beginning of a season and it might be set incorrectly now. If your thermostat requires batteries, check to see if they need to be replaced. Think about where your thermostat is located, if it’s in direct sunlight or near other heating sources, it could be reading that your home is already at the required temperature.

Check around your home to be sure all windows and doors are closed tightly, look at seals and check for drafts. Your furnace is more likely to turn off and on frequently if cold air or drafts are entering the house.
