I'm not familiar with the furnace, but you must have a two speed vent blower on the AUD100. It may be that it is not tripping the 2nd stage pressure switch on the higher speed. That could possibly...

I'm not a professional, but since no one else has responded, let me take a shot.

Any chance of a squirrel having eaten a hole into a duct in the attic? If your gas bill has gone up, and your room temps have gone down, you are losing heat somewhere. It is bound to be in the most...

Needs help, What about the bark while belt was off? Did the motor alone bark on startup? If so that eliminates at least the belt.

I think the fact that the motor was louder without the belt...

Rick, I'm not familiar with the furnace, but have one thought. Use a pressure meter (manometer, magnehelic, whatever) to measure the pressure at the condensate box, and compare to the set point on...

One of your taco pumps is circulating water through the heating coil for the upstairs zone. The pipes will be insulated, but you may be able to find an exposed fitting at the coil input/output where...

Ah ha. The information about the separation of the zones helps. I assumed that the forced hot air operated in the same zones as the radiant loops.
