    Thanks, I think I'll swap intake sides to make the installation and future servicing more accessible.

    Ironically, the inside of the furnace was like new. Although, possible they had the filter on and removed it before the sale of the house.

    SUCCESS! I have two of the three ducts attached and got...

    I realize now the missing returns is causing all of the issue, but the thing that I don't understand is how the lower tenants were able to survive in 60F winters? Maybe they added electric heat.

    I...

    Thanks for all the help!!!

    Sorry no pictures ... I love pictures, but I've been working on this as priority-one and don't have time.

    The contractor made matters worse by 10F, and quoted $2k for...

    A quick follow up on the mystery cold.

    For a mere $100, the service man slowed the blower and kicked up the heat a little, but it actually made matters worse.

    I spent all day taking the 75K...
  6. Big BTU vs small BTU ... which in upper, which in lower

    I'm still fighting with an issue, but am looking for a long term resolution.

    In a double (we will be living in both upper and lower) how would you assign one 75K BTU and one 50K BTU furnace? It...

    Thanks for all the help.

    I have an appointment for Saturday, I'll let you know what they say.

    Very possible ... the flame looks exactly the same as with the working upper counterpart, but the eye cannot see heat. This needs to be tested by a professional. I know the guy who lived there last...

    Airon - That's one thing I forgot to test for, too much air flow. Without the return ducts, there's probably a ton of air flowing without return restriction. I'll shut a few vents and see if it warms...

    I don't think it's a high efficiency, only because it looks like they went the cheapest route.

    Dirt? I don't think so, I looked up at the HX with a mirror and it looks like new. The blower fins...

    This is heat only, no AC.

    The unit is kept off.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I'll guess this has been like this since 2003, with tenants in the upper and lower.

    It is possible that the lower can stay comfortably warm with the upper being...

    I guess that's the real question - do I call a repair man or a contractor to finish the duct work???

    * The basement is not heated nor insulated.
    * Both 1st floor and 2nd floor furnaces are in...
  14. Got fire, got air ... but 61F is as hot as it gets?!?

    It's cold here in Buffalo, and we just moved into an "as-is" double. I'm stumped: The upper furnace works fine, but the lower blows warm air. The flame burns blue and true, blower spins like a top,...
