    So it tripped even with the supply and return ducts disconnected???

    Did he check the gas pressures and check the burners to see the flame???

    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    Well, if there is another problem besides being over sized. Then your lucky it showed up now instead of later.

    Many of us have seen the effects of gross oversizing. And those home owners weren't happy with the end result.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    As been pointed out and irag pointed out, get either the Honeywell FocusPro, or the VisionPro line t-stat.. If they say running a new t-stat wire going to be an issue, then go into the IAQ t-stat (YTH9421)

    Did they do a temp rise reading?

    Yes it tripped w/ supply and returns disconnected, he checked gas pressures as did the installers . He was talking to the installer on the 2-way about a piece of sheet metal over the burners , the installer wasn't sure if this piece was to be removed for my install , he hadn't seen this before. The tech was mulling over removing the venting to see if this piece was over the burner and restricting air flow . I offered to let him cut an access to see , rather than dissassembling everything , kinda glad he didn't .He couldn't look up because burner is in the way .They might have left some deflector that should have been removed . Return is on the right ,goes through Trane effects , Supply comes out the top , is there something they should have changed or removed for this ?

    A 120,000 BTU furnace should have 2 sides for return if they want a 50° temp rise in high..
    Needs 2100 CFM of air for that rise.
    almost 1600 for 70°.
