    the furnace works well constently. i live here for four years about a year ago it started it seems to me maybe duct work possibly came apart or somthing . i live in a ranch townhouse with another townhouse above me. so there no where to look at anything else. its not a summer/fall thing the rooms a very chillly constantly. the doors to the rooms have vents above them. for cold air returned

SORRY NO EASY FIX this is WAY TO COMMON bulders just dont care try turning off or down the vent that is blowing hard . that will make the air find another way out , if theres no way to turn it off remove the grill and use duct tape and a peace of cardboard to block it off , replace the grill ,that way it will look good ... if the house is new call your builder and ask him to have a larger duct run to that room , it will cost him big bucks but its not your falt it his good luck

    it will work sometimes ? is it a summer / winter thing ? if this is , think about this . cool wants to FALL and heat wants to RISE. ductwork does not change how about the door to the room ? does it have room under it when its closed for air to escape the room ? something to think about , let me know i am not giveing up yet

    BOB BROWER Jan 18, 2009

    you do have a problem if you cant even get to the ductwork to see if its apart . the next step if i was you would be to talk to someone in your complex with a place just like yours and see if thay have the same problem . other than that i think your stuck

Is 32c a normal temp for an exhaust on a force air high efficiency house furnace? This is the air temp that goes outside after heating the plenum. Is there a lot of heat going up the "chimney"??

Any furnace providing heat where it should and has little to no heat from its exhaust is doing a GREAT job ;-)

Our high efficiency gas furnace was installed with a PVC pipe as a 'chimney' which bothered me to no end until I found the surface temp of that plastic pipe only barely warm to the touch- that is a home run!

Gas Furnace Model GMH 95070, installed May 09. Air flow from registers noisy. Installer reduced it one level -still noisy. Said it cound not be cut lower because it would get to hot due to slow air flow. I...

Seems to me, the problem is not with gas, it's with the size of the duct work. 4" diameter is way to small if the entire duct work system is only 4". The trunk line may have not been sized proper,y. so the volume of heat has now been translated into high pressure, which is why the registers are noisy.
Also 6" ducts coming off a larger trunk line to each register is the norm for 1000 sq ft home.
Also, are your registers in the floor or the ceiling? Ceiling registers historically are a little noisier than floor registers. Mainly because, they're overhead and closer to your ears. But, if they were up-sized to 6", the noise would decrease quite a bit.

Hope this helps.

Our Armstron (magic Chief) oil furnace keeps shutting on and off during the heating cycle.

I will try to help, but a little more info would be great, when you say it shuts off, it is important to determine if it is the burner or the blower that is shutting off.
If the burner is shutting off and coming back on, the safety "fan and limit" control is getting to hot,,
If what I have listed above, there are several things that can cause it;
1. The first step is to make sure that the air filters are clean, the return air grills are clear, no objects covering them.
2. This part needs to be approached with care, Turning off power to the furnace is a must; then clean the blower area, and if it is a belt driven blower setup, inspect the belt, looking for cracks on the surface that makes contact with the pulleys. If the belt is old, it may be stretched and slipping on the pulleys, reducing the air that is being blown across the furnaces firebox, this will cause the furnaces safety "fan and limit" control to over heat and shut off till it cools off, then it will turn back on.

If the blower is the one that is shutting on and off, you would notice this at the supply registers in each room, air blows, then stops. This usually caused by really cold air blowing across the firebox, like after the house has been cold - over night, and usually will start operating more along the normal side of things as the home warms up.
Either the blower is moving to much air, blowing strongly in each room, or the furnace has been reducein it's firing rate - derated - a smaller nozzle being installed would be the main cause.... this is the first thing to check,,, if that doesn't do it, it would be highly recommended to have a experienced repair person look at it.
Remember when working in the blower area, please turn off the power to the furnace to save the fingers.
I hope this will give you a game plan.
Have a great evening.

Make sure to check and see if you do not have any bare wires touch ground or if you have any wires pinched causing a short to ground. Safety first so turn of power before checking. Also check to see if any wires on unit are touching one another. Hope this helps you.

Electric furnace blows cold air before and after warm air.

It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back
