Dual Zone HVAC?
I am about to begin finishing a basement in a 1900 sq ft ranch house. We live in Wisconsin so the basement is always about 10 degrees colder than the main level.
I'm considering adding a dual zone to our existing hvac system, which has a Lennox G51MP furnace. The goal is to use the second zone in the winter to make the basement more comfortable. In warmer seasons, there's really no need for the second zone because the basement is cooler and therefore more comfortable, as long as we run the dehumidifier to keep moisture under control.
Any opinions about whether the second zone is a good idea or not? Is my furnace adequate to run both zones?
Thanks very much for any input!
