HVAC Experts, need a little help
I have a 2 story home with 2 heat/AC units. Both are forced air single stage.
One for the front of the house, thermostat upstairs for all rooms except 1 that is downstairs but works great.
Second unit heats/cools master bedroom downstairs and large family room upstairs in the back of the house. The thermostat is downstairs. The problem is the bedroom will be freezing or too hot before upstairs is even affected. Here is where I need the advice. Planning to get a zone panel, 2 thermostats (1 up, 1 down), zone dampers and a zone bypass damper. Seems pretty basic to install. I have read that the bypass could shorten the life of the unit. Too cold/hot going back through the return, too much air flow. Is this something I can tackle? Any insights on the bypass?
Quote of $3500 to have an expert do this and a second quote of $200 to come look at the system.
Thanks for any help.
