Adding zone to forced hot air
I appreciate the reply. So, basically, the best thing to do would be to rip out all the walls in the place and put in a new heating system and A/C system. That I already know.
I just moved in here this spring, so I haven't experienced the winters yet. However, I will say this - the 2nd and 3rd floors are fine in the summer with the one thermostat. The bottom floor is the problem. I'm going to have someone come in and look at the system. I know how air flows (warm air rises, cold air sinks), but I don't think I can get a unit in the attic, since there really isn't an attic and it's near my bedroom.
Of course, I AM getting all my floors ripped out so I should just get radiant heat anyway. That would at least solve half my problem!
Thanks for the advice both of you.
