What happened? The basement become too warm in winter and the first floor become too cold in winter, and the other way in summer?

Finishing a Basement


Basement is allways cold in winter because current heat runs are tapped into first floor ducts.First floor T stat doesnt care what temp is in basement.Beauty of zoning is each floor is independant, so its kinda like having a furnace or air for each floor.Winter time basement can be heated without overheating other floors, summer time basement can be closed off so its not like a fridge.
