    Oh, okay, thanks! I may have to pursue that route (although I hope I won't)!

    It is now raining, so I'm despairing of EVER seeing the contractor's face again. Meantime, I am looking into some of hte organizations and certification bodies that are involved in the HVAC field. I've heard about ACCA and NATE (we are basically screwed in our area on both of these counts). Any others that might signify a good company?

    Some Goodman and other air handlers use a blower delay-on feature to "pre chill" the coil prior to the blower kicking on. The "car starting" sound I'm not sure...when the blower spins up it can make a revolving sound sort of like a car starter. Any sounds you hear prior to the blower spinning up would likely be refrigerant flowing through the coil, which is a normal sound.

    I'm glad you don't talk in third person on the phone.

    That would've been too weird.

    Okay, thanks! It's not a big deal if it's normal....my deal is still the air at vents and also the resonance around the house!

    I'm weighing that one. Does anonymity of location (and thus contractor) result in more candid assessments on this board? Don't want anyone feeling any compunction or anything.

    Oh, and the fear that the unit might explode the house due to crazy install. That too.

    There is a ACCA contractor about 30 miles from your zip code

    Yeah, I saw that, but didn't find it listed on the NATE listing. Which (I know this is a personal call) takes precedence? Any others?

    One thing about this area...30 miles doesn't sound like far, but coming up from that town to this is rare (although they may do it, didn't check). Don't know why.
