Continuing the discussion from Smart air vents:
Also continuing the discussion from Smart HVAC Dampers?:
Sorry if this has already been discussed elsewhere, but…
This combination of ideas is very interesting to me. If we own the house, would it make more sense to install dampers directly into the air ducts, close to the source of the air-flow than to replace our floor vents in the rooms?
If we put a ‘dumb’ (though electrically controlled) damper in there PLUS a ‘smart’ relay switch, we could have a true zoned system…no?
I guess it seems this would be a bit more expensive than just getting the SmartVents. However, would the efficiency difference be enough to make it worth doing it this way instead?
Also, if we were to do this with either one, is the setup of a SmartApp to manage it all like a zoned system totally ready to fly, or is that part still…um…up in the air?
