What do I do when one level of my house is hotter than the other? (Regulate the Temperature in a Multi-story Home)

Q: Our upstairs level is always hotter than the first floor of our home. What’s the easiest way to regulate this?

A: You have a few options to address this issue. Some simple things include closing the window blinds or drapes so the sunlight doesn’t add to the heat gain. If a ceiling fan is available, turn it on to redistribute the air. The fan activated by the thermostat will also help distribute air throughout the home. You may also have some issues with the attic that could be addressed, such as inadequate ventilation. And, attics accumulate a great deal of heat, so you need adequate insulation between the attic and the upper level of your home. Make sure your air filter is routinely replaced and not clogged with dust and debris. Sealing leaky air ducts with HVAC tape will also help increase your system’s efficiency.
