Combustion air

If you taped up your openings lately, the problem got worse. Heating units need to purge the combustion gases out of the house after firing. If your house is too tight, it can not get in or out. Is there an opening next to your heaters or in the same room that lets combustion air come in? A furnace does not manufacture air - and you use oxygen to breathe. Tape it up and you have a problem.
