furnace questions on 360IBL

We were out camping in our 5th this weekend and one of the nights we needed to use the heat (with bedroom doors closed, the fireplace wasn't getting the heat into the rooms).

What I found was something that didn't seem right to me. When I turned the furnace on via the thermostat, the AC fan kicked on and was blowing air through the ceiling vents. I checked the floor vents and sure enough the heat was coming out the floor in all the vents.. So I shut the thermostat off which killed the AC fan and the hot air still was being pushed through the floor vents for another 10-15 seconds.

Is there something wrong here? I don't see why the Fan portion of the AC would turn on and blow cool air through all the ceiling ducts/vents when I want heat from the furnace.

Ideas?? Another issue to address with my dealer??

Scroll through the thermostat settings, set fan to auto.

No such settings with this thermostat. Single button (on/off mode) to toggle between "off", "fan", "cool" and "furnace". Then the + and - arrow for temperature up/down.

I have the same situation (ceiling a/c vents blowing air with furnace selected. Also have same thermostat) so I'll be watching this thread. I have a service appointment on July 1 for some other minor warranty work, so can add this if it's a problem that needs fixin'.

Thank you. I missed that when I was looking at the manual.
