You guys are WIMPS! Like OTIS311 said...it was -23 the other day for like 3 days straight and has been highs of 5-15 all week. This weekend is supposed to be warm though. 25 degrees. I hope too much snow doesn't melt.

The water temp on the lake is 36 at 3 feet depth (bottom of the thru hull transducer).

Woke up kind of cooler than usual - felt the heat/ac vents at the house and lukewarm air coming out.

Checked the gas furnace and the flame wont stay lit for more than 25 seconds then off for 20... High efficiency furnace - draft motor - pvc flue venting. When the flame is "on" it looks and sounds perfect. Opened up the bottom of the return air duct box to make sure adequate airflow was getting thru unit to rule out anything there - no change.

House is "fine" - around 70 degrees, and the temps look to be climbing back upwards after today, but wondering what the issue may be.

There is a "draft" indicator that measures the vacuum the draft motor is pulling. There is an overheat sensor near the draft motor that cuts the flame if the combustion air is "too hot" when it reaches the draft motor (like inadequate thruflow of household air would cause). There is a backflash switch to kill the flame if the flame pops back out of the burner. Not sure where to look...

Ideas?
Ours did this and it was caused by not enough return air to the furnace. They added another vent. If your's had been working fine check the filter it may be reducing your airflow.

You are right, they just don't appreciate the beauty and sparkle
that graces our great state! There is so much to do here in the
winter.
BTW, hope you and others east of here make the run this year!

Just got a call from my neighbor in MD at our condo there and it seem that mine or the one under me has a broken water pipe and is leaking water out the walls. Water co turned off the water mains and tomorrow we will drive down. I leave the heat on at 60 degrees when we are not there. I hope it is ok. Allways something.

mcollinstn,

could be that you're not getting enough fuel in. You did'nt say if it's propane tank or natural gas. If natural then the demand may be so high that natural lines can't meet increased demand.

Default Winter Freeze?

For all you Florida worriers, If all you are having is two hours a night of temps at freezing or better, dont worry about it! but in place of winterizing for a couple of days, put a light bulb in the engine compartment. the heat from it will give you peace of mind!!
