I'm an HVAC novice, so before I begin ignorantly messing w/my system,
please bear w/me....
My AC system seems to run extraordinarily long. We have a two zone HVAC
system w/motor driven baffles (in the basement -- one baffle per each
zone's duct) which should open/close when a particular zone is calling
(obviously... :-) ).
Zone two (first floor) is set to 'off' at the thermostat, and the
baffle LED for that zone is also red (confirmation to me that the zone
is off as it should be and not calling for air). However, though 1st
floor baffle should be closed, air continues to flow through the ducts,
and feels to me like it's at the same flow as at the second floor (zone
1 which is calling, and w/green LED at baffle).
What's up w/this? Is zone 2 baffle really not closed? Should it be
closed fully? I'd think I'd feel 'some' air flow even w/it closed, but
not at the same level as I'm feeling for the calling zone.....
