Put simply, any home that uses air pushed through ductwork for heating purposes takes advantage of forced air heating. In other words, this term refers not to your furnace, but to the delivery method of the heat throughout your home. Forced air heating is possible with electric or gas furnaces, or a heat pump. Any issues with this delivery system that aren't directly related to the furnace likely have to do with the duct work, which costs between $35 and $55 per linear square foot to repair, or the air handling unit.
Furnaces and thermostats are not mix-and-match appliances. Using the wrong type of thermostat with a furnace will cause operating problems and can be dangerous. Although thermostats look similar, they are designed very differently. There are numerous types of heating systems and thermostat systems and they need to be coordinated for safe and proper operation. There are three types of thermostat systems used today: millivoltage, low voltage, and line voltage.

“Walter Zainey started the Greenwood Furnace Co. in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle in 1918 and quickly built a reputation for providing quality products and services. For years we believed Greenwood began in 1921 but only recently, May of 2017, Walter’s granddaughter shared a newspaper ad from 1968 showing that Greenwood was actually founded in 1918! When your company goes back 100 years you are bound to have mixed messages about the history but we now have an accurate founding date and founder. Thank you to the Zainey family and especially Jacklyn for taking the time to share the story with us. I am sure Walter Zainey would be proud the heritage he created is still living on.
Furnace tune ups should take anywhere from 45 minutes to hour and a half, depending on what the technician has to deal with when he gets there. I was a heating and AC professional for over 10 years and I had tune ups that only took me 30 minutes, and others where it seemed like I had to practically disassemble the entire furnace, clean, then put back together. Every call is unique. However, it's important you trust your contractor. Your instincts are more accurate than you probably give yourself credit for. I don't remember a tune up ever going less than a 1/2 hr in my 10 years of experience. It just takes time to setup, take down, and perform the actual maintenance. If you figure a minute per inspection point, it should have at least taken half an hr. I've showed up to furnaces that look flawless, and I still take them apart and clean them because that's what the homeowner paid me for. If there is even a hint of a cracked heat exchanger, get a second opinion. There are scams out there, and unfortunately a 20 minute inspection wouldn't reveal that. Have whomever is making the claim show you via camera or by physically removing the combustion chamber from the furnace and showing you. As weird as that sounds, I've removed heat exchangers out of furnaces just to prove that there was an issue. A cracked combustion chamber can be a serious issue, so the fact that he said it should be fine says either he doesn't know what he's doing or he's not being truthful, or both. It's not that cracked heat exchangers are leaking carbon monoxide, it's that they can. It's the potential that makes it dangerous. Hope this helps!

Customer stated their blower fan is consistently running. She has had the furnace off all summer and just fired it up and it will just blow consistently. Upon investigation, the technician found that the damper control was sending 24V to G terminal while switched off. This indicates a stuck closed relay. I disconnected it and tested the unit. Due to age of unit, I would recommend upgrading to a more efficient model.
