Default I did it again

Basically stated the contractor had no idea what he or they were doing. Two story home 4500 SQ footer one 4 ton ground source heat pump located in the first level equipment room. The first level had no return air except one inch beneath the equipment room door. The grill on the wall is open to the front entry vestibule which is attempting to return the air from the upstairs where all the bedrooms, kitchen and living area is located. This was a 4 zone system and is FUBAR
