Answer: A single zone split air conditioner may not be enough to cool down multiple rooms in your home. You may need to buy one that's dual or triple zoned for effective cooling. You'll have to spend more money, but you'll avoid buying a unit that doesn't work for your entire house. Dual zones have two air handlers, and triple zones have three. Ideally, you'll want one handler per room in your home. One alternative is to get a system with enough BTUs to cover many rooms, without regard to the number of air handlers.
