Hot Upstairs And Cold Downstairs? Time To Fix That Problem!

If you have a two-story home, does it feel hot upstairs and freezing downstairs? If you have family living on both floors, it can be a battle for the thermostat with top-floor dwellers constantly wanting to turn the heat down while those on the first floor try to send temperatures skyrocketing. So, how do you help solve this dilemma peacefully? Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning, an expert in  air conditioning, offers the following advice on improving home comfort for all residents.

Use a Zoned System

With a zoned system, homes are separated into two distinct cooling zones: one located upstairs and the other located downstairs. This option allows owners to heat and cool different areas of their properties at the same time. Zoned systems can be very useful, but they aren’t a fix for all your heating and cooling issues. Before purchasing a new system, determine if you have another problem affecting your home’s comfort level

Identify Underlying Problems

Here are a couple of common AC problems that cause different levels of the home to feel like they are different temperatures:

  • Blocked vents: If your home is full of hot and cold spots, the problem could be that your vents are blocked with attic insulation, dust, or another substance. For best results, have your vents inspected and cleaned by a professional.
  • Leaking air ducts: If your ducts are leaking cold air, then the upper levels of the home will likely remain warm no matter how hard you blast the AC. To correct this issue, have your ducts checked out by a professional and sealed if necessary.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
