Can one thermostat control multiple zones?
With a smart thermostat for multiple zones, you can set up multiple different zones around your house. Following that, you can use your smartphone app or remote control to set different temperatures for all different rooms. That means everyone can have their way and no one needs to compromise.
Can one smart thermostat control two units?
Fortunately, you can. Many thermostat companies along with Ecobee, allow you to wire more than one thermostat to the same HVAC unit. Whether it’s a boiler or a furnace that you’re using to control the heat of your house or it is an AC or ventilation unit, multiple thermostats can be connected.
Can you have multiple thermostats?
Yes, in principle, you can use two thermostats to control one HVAC zone. If correctly installed, set, and used you can actually save on your electricity bill. You can also connect more than one thermostat to a single HVAC unit.
Do I need multiple thermostats?
If you have a traditional thermostat that doesn’t support the use of temperature sensors, you will need a thermostat in each room and potentially, multiple heating and cooling systems.
Do I need 2 thermostats for 2 zones?
Sometimes, central HVAC systems are broken up into multiple zones (through duplication of heat sources, or usage of dampers and ducts). Each of those circuits will require their own dedicated thermostat. If this is the case, we’d recommend a separate smart thermostat for each zone.
What is a dual thermostat?
A dual thermostat is capable of having two distinct programs programmed in it. Most commonly a “present” program, which warms up during the day, cools in the evening etc. and an “away” program which simply protects the building from freezing, say holds a constant temperature of 40F inside.
Can you have 3 thermostats one AC unit?
It is possible to have two or more thermostats controlling a single central air conditioning unit or HVAC. When more than one thermostat is installed, each thermostat creates a zone.
How many thermostats should you have?
Having two thermostats wired to the same HVAC unit allows you to evenly condition your home. With the use of zones, control, and dampers, you can regulate your home from top to bottom. However, installing two can be complicated. Multiple thermostats allow for more accuracy and efficiency.
How does smart thermostat work with multiple zones?
When multiple thermostats control one system, the house is divided into zones using dampers in the ductwork throughout the house. When one zone needs heating or cooling, the damper for the ductwork in that zone opens, guiding the warm or cool air to that zone.
How do I set up multiple thermostats?

Do I need a smart thermostat for every room?
Smart room thermostats are great options because you don’t need to fit a thermostat in every room. Instead, you’ll need sensors. This temperature control option eliminates the cost of buying and installing multiple thermostats.
How do I set up multiple heating zones?
Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Now if we had done those motorized dampers i was talking about i probably would have to cut into this soffit right here and into this ductwork. And put one damper over here.
What is a multi zone HVAC system?
A zoned HVAC system divides your home into multiple zones, each controlled by its own thermostat. This allows you to set each room to the ideal temperature for you, instead of having to heat or cool the entire home to just one temperature.
Is zoned heating worth it?
Zoning can be useful in almost any situation, but it’s especially helpful in homes that have unique heating and cooling challenges. For instance, it’s often difficult for central HVAC systems to effectively manage multi-story homes. Upper levels may become too warm while lower levels stay too cold.
How do you wire a multi zone heating system?
