Doorbell

I couldn't really find a category for this.
While I'm remodeling my house I want to extend the doorbell to the downstairs. I have the one chime upstairs and want to add 2 more downstairs. One in the garage and one in the finished basement.
I have it planned out on how to extend the wiring but do I need to add a transformer to carry the voltage to the 2 additional chimes? One for each chime?
I currently have the wireless setup but i want to go back to the original way.
Thanks

You will need to replace your transformer with a larger one. You can't use two together. For three chimes.... a 16v-24vAC transformer at 40va would be good.
