attic mounted hydronic furnace an ac
 
I have an attic mounted hydronic furnace that has stopped heating but the ac seems to be working.

I have been told by a repair house that services hydronic systems that the whole system will have to be flushed.

How can I fix it myself?

First... "hydronic" means forced hot water and a boiler (not a furnace)
Second... hydronic and boilers have NOTHING to do with AC

To start... Go take a photo of what you have and post it here.
Include the make and a model # too.

Might have air in it that needs purged. As above, post pics.

Not true. There are air handlers with hot water coils and evaporator coils....... Unlikely though that it is in an unconditioned space (attic)
