Only half of my house is heating up

My house is split into two sections. An uostairs apartment area and a second level with a basement. The second level and basement heat work fine but the upstairs heating isnt working at all. Could it be a pressure issue. I will send photos, to anyone who can help. Thank you.

Welcome to the forums.

You posted in the furnace forum. Is this a furnace with hot air or a boiler with hot water ?
You can post pictures here...... How-to-insert-pictures.

A moderator will do that.
Where are you zone valves? You need to check the zone valve for the area that’s not working. If it’s not open you’ll need to check voltage.
What is the boiler pressure?

Please explain how and why you removed the water.
Is the boiler still running?
If so please shut it down and use space heaters. A boiler running with low or no water is extremely dangerous. Putting water into that empty boiler when hot is even more dangerous. Either can cause an explosion that can kill you and level your home.

Closing thread... Original poster needs to call a pro. Its already a dangerous situation IMO.
