How many btu's is the furnace? Is the burner constantly firing or does it cycle on and off constantly? Is the blower running? Can you feel air flow from the registers?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Don't know how many BTU, it does cycle on and off and there is airflow at the registers. Last summer we also added a/c to it and a new blower motor in '05.

Now we're getting somewhere. Who installed the a/c? Was it in Summer 07 or this summer? How did the furnace heat last winter? What are the approximate firing times for the burners? Can you check incoming and outgoing air temps? Are you in heating season now?
