We have a 2800 sq ft home with dual thermostats. I have the upstairs turned 'off' and use only the downstairs to set temp. There are 2 cooling units, 1 full size, 1 half size. I honestly don't know what the heating is as it is in the attic. The upstairs stays very comfortable with this method and a small space heater in the open bathroom when showering.
