My furnace ( colman 3400-815) dose not work on auto

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

Yes well the 20 by 20 and it is dirty. I pulled it out and am in the process of cleaning out everything. I tested the thermostat r and w wires it is at 28.4 volts a.c. and put them together and it will turn on but heats kinda slow

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Well to be honest I don't know. I was thinking sequencers or heat strips?
