    I'll assume the thing the furnace is sitting on is just a base and not the sole return path. Could be a door seal or something to do with the omitted trap when the fan is on high.

    Sloppy business/trade practices, inadequate regulation, and shortsighted customers either don't know, are willing to pay for, or demand proper procedures. The bush league contractors figure if...

    92,000 btu's for 1400s/f in California? No way a load calc was done. The furnace is probably 100% oversized for the house, and now you want to cobble together an A/C to go along with it for year...

    Zoning can go wrong many ways unless you go with a high end proprietary variable capacity system. More than 2 zones on a 1 or 2 stage sytem with generic controls is futile. Adding more zones will...
