Hi, I'm Brian and I'll be happy to help with this. I'm sorry for the slow response, holiday weekend and all.

Because your exhaust is running (combustion air fan), chances are your thermostat is not the issue. This will take some investigation to find the culprit but it's likely an issue within your furnace. Perhaps a combustion air proving switch issue or a flame detection issue. The furnace should throw a code with a blinking led that can be seen through the furnace's front panel. If you can tell me any code it's blinking and the make and model number of your furnace, I can help you narrow down the issue.

Thanks,

Brian

Son n law out for the day.
Will contact this afternoon.. Will You be around???
HVAC Technician: Brian HVAC Guy, HVAC Technician replied 3 months ago

I'm not sure I understand your statement. Are you requesting the additional Premium Service phone call service (additional charge) or are you just saying it will take your SIL a while to get to you from across town? You should edit your response with your number in it and remove your phone number since this is a public board and anyone can see it. If you'd like the addition Premium Service of phone call support, let me know and I'll submit the offer to you and there we can exchange personal info in a private way.

HVAC Technician: Brian HVAC Guy, HVAC Technician replied 3 months ago

Yes, I will be around all day so if you'd like to put this on hold until your SIL can get there, that will be just fine!

HVAC Technician: Brian HVAC Guy, HVAC Technician replied 3 months ago

I understand fully and that'll be just fine! I'll be notified when you post a response and are ready to continue troubleshooting. I'll keep any eye out for your next response later in the day.

Thanks,

Brian
