2 zones on Trane XE80


Im planning to install a 2 zone setup for my basement and 1st floor.

I have 6 ducts opening to basement and 6 opening to 1st floor

do i need to buy 6 electronic dampers or 12 electronic dampers ?
trying to keep the costs low since these things are EXPENSIVE

Can you give me some guidance please.

thanks in advance.

Zoning is normally done with the dampers in the main supply ducts.

I would think two unless you only have one supply trunk feeding both floors. I was thinking that you had two trunks but that might not be the case. Zoning can be complex and you have to consider bypass air when only one zone is flowing to keep the heat/ac equipment happy.
