Hello , I have a very small cape style house with a two zone
(upstairs/doenstairs) forced hot air sytem.
Both of the motorized units mounted on the ducts have never worked
correctly. and in fact now they both dont work at all . I believe they
are called tematrols ?
Anyway can I replace the motorized unit with manual type ? I relise
I would loose the upstairs zone control but that is OK as plenty of
heat reches the upstairs.
Can I simply diconnect the wires and remove the two motorized controls
and replace them with two manual controls that I can adjust to let most
of the heat go downstairs and just a bit to feed upstairs.
will disconnecting and removing the tempa trols have and affect on the
thanks for the help
I don't think anyone can give you a simple yes or no based on what you
have told us.
Making a few guesses I would say yes, but I had to make guesses to say
they. I would also say you may well be happier and be able to run your
system for less cost by having the system properly repaired. You may be
able to save far more than the cost of the work.
I suggest finding a good local tech (ask friends and neighbors) and have
them take a look at your system and make suggestions of where to go with
what you have now. BTW normally heating systems have more difficulty keep
the lower floors warm, not the upper floors.
