My home is a 3 bedroom, 1500 sq. ft. townhome in Denver, Colorado. The first floor is an entryway, hallway, two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Upstairs is the main floor, with the living room, kitchen, guest half bathroom, and master suite with a full bathroom. I have a Google Nest thermostat located upstairs, with three remote sensors (one upstairs in master bedroom, one in each bedroom downstairs). My AC/furnace is located in the attic, above the second level. I have a major problem where currently in the winter, it is is often 10-15 degrees colder downstairs than up. If I set the thermostat to use the temperature at one of the downstairs remote sensors instead of the thermostat itself upstairs, then upstairs overheats by 10-15 degrees. I think I can solve this problem with Flair smart vents, but I would like guidance on the best configuration. From what I am reading on the Flair website, I would need to install smart vents on each of the upstairs registers. Is this correct? That would be 6 smart vents (not counting registers that are in bathrooms or closets). Would I also need a puck upstairs and one downstairs? It appears Flair can communicate with Google Nest thermostat, but not Nest remote sensors. So would I just need a Flair puck downstairs then? Is there a more cost-effective way to solve my problem with less than 6 smart vents?
