zone 1 and 2

I see on the thermostat you can program zone 1 and 2. My question is how does the air conditioner know what zone it is in, if the 2 air conditioners are mounted on a race track duct work, how does it know where not to dump so much cool air.Just wondering.

Both units dump into the same plenum. If zone 2 is on then it feeds the entire plenum from the second air over the bedroom. Same goes for zone 1. There is no blocking of air for the zones.

Zone 1 is the main room zone 2 is the bedroom. Even though it's 1 plenum. You have 2 temp sensors zone 1 is in your thermostat zone 2 is mounted on the ceiling of your bedroom. That way each area gets a temp with some bleed over to the other

I think the newer 2016 models may have the temp sensor on the wall next to the light switch now. I saw a photo of a 34RE at a dealer with the sensor on the wall. The unit also had the extra heater for the bedroom in it.

I have zone 2 sensor up in the bedroom, and I also have the built in heater in the bedroom, not sure where the sensor is located in the living area, will look tonight.

Living area sensor is part of the wall thermostat. Yes, the mid year models have the bedroom sensor on the wall instead of the ceiling.

Probably put sensor on the wall due to adding heat to bedroom...

I think they placed it on the wall to possibly follow SOB lead and give a better location for feedback. Sensor on ceiling seemed always in the path of cold air right off the vent.
