3 new Coleman 47073-879 ac units don't shutoff cleanly. 2 have heat pumps and they change fan speed quickly when starting and stopping.

I have a 2 year old Goodman GDS80703ANA furnace that has always had a problem starting. Sometimes it starts on the first attempt but other times it takes 2 or 3 attempts.

On the next attempt or so, the Gas Valve will open sooner and burner will ignite. My question is: Is the Integrate
