    My furnace is "short cycling" I believe. Typically the blower will turn on for about a minute and then shut off. After that I can hear the inducer motor running for a few minutes and then the blower kicks on for a normal amount of time to complete the cycle. There have been a couple of times...

    To anyone willing to help, I am not sure of the cause but I believe there is an obstruction. The Kitchen and adjacent bathroom have very poor hot water flow; the cold water is better. The bathroom on the 2nd floor seems to have normal hot and cold water flow. Additional observations...
