    Do you think it will use significantly more fuel now that it runs an extra minute every time the burner kicks on than it did last year when the fan started after 50 seconds of burner run time?

    yes, very close to furnace. A direct line at this register to the furnace (not through the plenum) and about 10 to 15 linear feet of duct.

    When it first comes out of the register it is the latent air inside the ducts and is 70 degrees. within a 10 or 15 seconds it's up to 75, within a minute its up to 85 within a few minutes it peaks...

    okay, I'll do that. I assume measure the temp at the closest register to the furnace and also at the return. I suspect that the initial temp will be on the cool side since the ducts would have to...

    Over the summer, the control board to my AC/furnace failed and was replaced. The heating season is just about to begin and I noticed that the delay between the blower and burner is slightly...

    It did it a bit at the end of the year. But it mainly ran great.

    Should I not trust this company anymore? If I call anyone else to look at the burner, it will cost $$.

    For what it is...

    The ductwork in my home is very small. My feeling is that even with the "high" speed on the fan, the ductwork is limiting the air volume and speed. It is a small 1 story home w/basement (unheated,...

    Thanks for the advice. I will call them back.

    FYI, I looked inside the furnace and for the 0.75gph nozzle, it lists high or med-high as acceptable fan speeds. Temp rise is 55 to 85 degrees.

    no, he didn't say anything about heat exchanger. He was just here about a month ago for an annual service/cleaning. So I assume if the heat exchanger was a problem, he would have said something?
