And for various reasons the theater should be a dedicated zone at the minimum.
I will likely be asking them, down the road, to make the theater its own zone (I have Carrier Infinity zoning). So they would need to make a new zone for the theater room. I believe you can have 8 zones total with Carrier Infinity -- I just have 2 now (the basement/main floor together and then the bedroom level).
But that's not under warranty, as zoning the theater room wasn't included in the original plans, so right now I'm just trying to get them to make it work as it was built. I don't have to pay for that -- still under the one year house warranty.
I also might have them divide the basement into two zones -- with the theater room as one zone and the rest of the basement another zone.
Regardless, I want a thermostat in that theater room eventually.
