I have divided my home in 3 zones but I am not able to control the temperature correctly.
Zone 1 - Living room - Nest Thermostat + no puck + 4 flair vents
Zone 2 - Basement - Gateway Puck + Flair vents
Zone 3 - Upstairs - Puck - no vents
I want to control the temp of the 3 zones independently but it's not working.
CASE 1 When I set the SETPOINT CONTROLLER to Thermostat:
I set puck set temp to hold for Basement and upstairs and thermostat temp for living room
Living room controlled by thermostat temp is ok but the other zones are not controlled well (i.e. if upstairs I need more cooling but Living room is ok the thermostat is switching off the a/c and therefore even if the vents are closed there is no air moving)
CASE 2 I tried changing the SETPOINT CONTROLLER to Flair app
I set puck set temps to hold for Basement and upstairs and living room temp hold on flair app. House setpoint is set very low, lower than any setpoints
in this case, even if the app is controlling the thermostat setpoint, the app is not turning on the a/c (lowering the thermostat setpoint) even if the temp upstairs is 5 F above setpoint (for cooling)
i.e. Basement 69 F Set point 74 F, Living room 78 F set point 78F, upstairs 80F set point 75 F , HOME setpoint 72F
Why is not switching on the a/c ? What is happening when I change set temp on the thermostat ? Can the Nest replace the puck as advertised?
In all situation the flair vents were working ok when needed.
