    I can't speak as to the cooling, but we have been very happy with our Infinity system in terms of heat. We have four zones, not so much for cost savings, as for comfort -- one bedroom is downstairs,...

    It would seem that, if you are going to zone, you really have to put in a two-stage system, or else your system is going to be too big much of the time?

    I was not too worried from our perspective. We went with a variable speed setup, which I think should cover us to the extent that I expect us to only run certain zones at any given time.

    OK. I see the logic with the 2 systems adding up to a certain capacity, but, by the same token, if you run only one system, you are running at the lower capacity.
