picture would help maybe a damper in ductwork sending air to only one side???

Is this a horizontal or vertical furnace? Does the new transition, if you have one and it's new, match both the furnace and evaporator coil openings or is it too small or too big and blanked off?

I'd have to assume, as Ben has said, a damper is most likely the culprit but check the transition.

Yes, pics would help greatly.

follow the supply duct from the furnace when it splits like a pair of pants legs stop there is a direction balancing damper full over to the heated side adjust it back...the heated section is blasting air out....

Hey guys thanks for quick reply- I asked the furnace guy if he could put a damper in the one side so that all of the heat wont go that direction- but as of yet there is no damper installed on ducts- it is a vertical unit- does this maybe have a damper in the furnace itself, because there is none on ductwork!

You could possibly have dampers on the plenum where the duct takes off from the unit.
