hi i am dan i can help you with this. first how is it wired to come on now just when the furnace is runnig? what is the purpose for it being on its own thermostat?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have it wired to the furnace however I would like it to run when for the upstairs only so it will run when that thermostat says it needs to. I have power running from furnace to blower.

ok so you want to make the second floor its own zone correct?

Expert:  Daniel Plourde replied 1 year ago.

ok first just by controlling the boster fan with a thermostat will not make the second floor its own zone. the furnace will have to run too and need to isolate the first floor in order not to overheat the first floor zone. what you will have to do is install a complete zone system with a controller and dampers and make some duct modifications.
