OK - I know they HAS to be a way to do this. I own a 3 level townhouse with a thermostat on the 2nd level. I'm sick of putting the thermostat on 72 and having the lower level at 65 and the upper level at 80. How are zones installed in forced hot air? Any idea what it would run to have separate zones put in for the other levels?

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.
