2 Story House 1 Air Handler on 1st floor....1 on 2nd floor
Now...I keep hearing different things about ...only using one air handler in the basement ...to cool the entire house..
zone dampers anyone ?
I have found in my... 19 yrs of service work...it works best if you have..
2 systems ...
one for each floor....
But....where is the cost savings
or is there ?
and what happens ...when both floors are calling ?
Keep it simple
Air Handler......for each floor

Both methods work, and both methods have their pros and cons.
2 units: Cost more to insall, twice the maintanence cost. Redundency if one unit breaks down.
1 unit zoned: Cost less to install, better whole house air circulation during milder temp days. Over sized for any 1 zone.Contractor locator map
How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
