Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

I need the brand and model of your furnace (not the gas valve).

That's the AC coil not the furnace. Remove the access panel where the burners are and check the inside sides of the compartment for the rating tag
