    No. You should contact an HVAC specialist in your area and let them tell you if they can shorten the piping. This is not a DIY site.

    You would still want a heat loss/heat gain done on the garage. If you put too big of a unit in, it can lead to short cycling. Ductless mini splits are the way to go. The air handler is mounted on the...

    I would suggest a zoning system. If there is access to the attic above both rooms, or at least 1 wall accessible from the attic in both rooms, then you could have a thermostat in both rooms....

    Loose connections would be my first thought. Either the spade connection, or where the spade connection is crimped on the wire.

    Dash- I agree, you shouldn't plan for future owners. But I still stand by my opinion that it is not smart to replace 2 systems with 1 system. Then zone it, and hope that you never want the whole...

    Yes, he does. He is also considering doing away with 2 systems, and going back with just 1 system with zoning.

    One negative that I can think of by going from 2 systems to 1 system with a damper system, is breakdowns. If you have 2 systems and one has a problem, then at least you have 1 working system until...
