    The ducts on the return are similar to the supply, with a Y at the top feeding to two 16" flex lines. Those flex return lines hook up to 2 separate plenums (one on each side of the house). There is...

    Beenthere-I'm not sure what that means. If I told my contractor that I would like to have vanes installed, I'm assuming they would know what they are? Also, what benefits do they provide?

    My unit is 410(a), and the duct work was installed when the current unit was installed (8 years ago when we built the house). I'm not sure how I would determine if there is inadequate duct work.

    I trust these guys. They are the ones that put in my system originally, and have a good reputation in our town. I haven't seen anything that would indicate that they have or will cut corners.

    Guru..you were right....5 year warranty, but only on the parts. I had to pay for the labor. Of course, it took him 5 minutes, so I probably could've found a Thermidistat for less and installed it...

    flipping the dip switch for installer mode from off to on to off again seems to have fixed the problem. If it happens again, I'll call my service man.
