    Did you happen to read the installation manual for the furnace? It should be explained in there how each different kind of equipment arrangement should be wired.

    The limit should not be in contact with the heat exchanger. With what you found with the fuse I would be suspect of everything in that unit. Make sure the limit that is installed is in fact the...

    The SP #'s you are reporting tell the whole story. The zones are not sized properly for the capacity of at least the AC part of the system.

    The carrier zoning does not use a bypass/dump damper...

    The round pipe looks to be old. I say that because the tape on the joints looks a lot like the old asbestos type that used to be installed.

    They possibly could be replaced by rectangular...

    From here it sounds like (possibly) your contractor, for whatever reason, is in a bit over his head. If they are willing, ask them to call in a technical representative from where he brought the...

    Keep pushing the contractor to get whoever installed the intake to come out and take a look at it. I've heard them do this and the noise usually comes from the damper that is installed "somewhere"...

    I seriously doubt that the thermostat had anything to do with the AC dying at 25 years old. Did you ask the contractor if he thought it did? It probably was just a untimely coincidence..... like...

    Ever hear the saying "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you surely don't have time to do it over and over again."? And most customers aren't going to keep handing your company...

    1) What were your resistance readings on the windings and to ground?
    2) What did the original capacitor measure for the compressor?

    A cheap mechanical clock, wire it to the pressure control (the how is up to you) so that the clock gets power when the pump does. Set for 12:00 and the added minutes in the morning will be how long...

    Building inspectors have the last say on what needs to be done. If you're being told something has to be done, but aren't sure why, ask them nicely if they could give you a copy of the exact code or...

    Pictures of your boiler system would be good. As the saying goes they can be worth a thousand words. Don't get to close (include floor to ceiling shots to get all piping etc.) and take them from...
