    Look at manufacturer’s specs and see what the throw would cover. Instead of a wall mount, maybe a suspended four way cassette head will give you a better coverage area.

    As previously stated, if he doesn’t know DC voltage between communication terminals 1 & 2, he is chasing his tail. And yes I have seen the same symptoms other than the changing superheat settings.

    Call a contractor. There are ways to install a sealed boot to existing duct whether flex or metal. Takes a little ingenuity.

    Those are cased coils where the case is ductboard. They are designed to not need a supply plenum. Do NOT flow air properly. Someone needs to measure system static pressure.

    Ask your tech if he knows what dc voltage should be between terminal 1 & 2. If he doesn’t know what it should be he will spend a lot of time chasing his tail.

    I was assuming you were talking about an emergency pan. New construction in Austin does not require float switch if secondary pan is piped. Retrofits need emergency pan piped AND a float switch.

    If the drain pan is piped to empty overflow condensate, they were not required to install float switch in Austin. You could probably get a contractor to install a float switch if you desire.

    You need to be discussing with your agent. As Pecmsg said “get your hvac contractor to look at the furnace”. Just because he has a license does NOT mean very much.

    Whether new or used, if proper voltage to board but no voltage to motor, board is bad. I have installed new boards that were bad. Makes you pause and recheck everything.

    The best way for contractor to verify duct sizes is to check static pressure. If he cant prove it is within manufacturer’s specs, then he needs to correct it.
