New to 2 Story Homes
We're in the process of locating a new 2 story home in the Houston area (read HOU-HUMID !! here ). Several of the interesting homes are <10 yrs old. They all only have 1 AC unit with the thermostat upstairs.
Im curious-- I'd always heard that with a decent sized (3000+ sq ft) 2 story house, one should have 2 units-- one up and one down.
Cost notwithstanding--Im soliciting comments on the pluses and minuses of
Only one unit
Addiing an upstairs unit
Having two seperate systems in a two story home is always the best idea. The control issue and creature comfort are the best reasons for having multiple zones.
Since you live in Houston check out this web site. http://www.centralcityair.com/index2.htm
There's a short discussion of 2 story houses in the CCA library. This guy can tell you everything you need to know about a/c in Houston.
I agree with MechanicalDVR. And as an owner of a two-story house with only one unit, I wish I had two!
