I have gas heat and have the thermostat at around 90 degrees but I'm lucky to get the room temp to be 50 degrees. I heard something about air being in the pipes, but if not this, what could it be??? Please help.

Do you have forced air or hot water heat?

If hot water is the boiler firing up and heating the water?

If forced air is the furnace getting a flame?

Thanks for the reply...
I have hot water heat and the boiler will fire up but only for a few seconds and then shut off. When we had the home inspection, about a month ago, the heat worked fine. We got a hole in a pipe, fixed and no heat since. What is really odd is now there is some heat upstairs and no, I mean no, heat downstairs. HELP.

Julie,
When the hole was repaired its very possible the complete system wasnt bled completely and as a result, you have air in the lines. Another good possibility is the high limit switch is defective, this could cause the boiler to only come on for a short while. These are only two possibilities. There could be other reasons instead of these or as well as these. Good luck! Is your boiler gas or oil fired?
