If you live a two story home, you know how difficult it can be to keep that upper level cool. Not only can it be hard, but it can be expensive as well. When you are struggling with an upper level that simply isn’t comfortable, it can leave you wondering what can be done to solve the problem. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to share our best tips to help make your upper level more comfortable during the summer months.
Don’t Skip Ceiling Fans
In a second story, it can be a game changer to have working ceiling fans in the rooms. They can help the room feel up to five degrees cooler than the room would if there were no air circulation. This is a budget friendly tip to help make your upper living spaces much more comfortable.
Insulation does much more than keep your home warm during the winter. It will also help the cool air in your home stay in your home. You should check your attic periodically to make sure the insulation looks good and there isn’t any damage to it anywhere. You may find that you need to add some insulation to get the best cooling results for your upper level.
Keep Air Vents Open
If the vents in your upper level are covered or they are closed, the air isn’t able to get to the rooms and cool them off. You should always be aware of the vents in your home to ensure they are open and not covered by the furniture in the spaces. If you have any vents that aren’t open, you will be much less comfortable.
Consider an HVAC Zoning System
A common problem with two-story homes is that they only have a thermostat on the lower level. This means that the lower level, which is already cooler than the upper, will be getting an accurate reading as far as how warm or cold the space is. You can set up a zoning system which consists or more than one thermostat so that you get an accurate reading for the entire home. This can help keep the upper level much cooler.
Add a Second Air Conditioning System
One of the most efficient ways to keep your upper level as cool as possible is to have a second HVAC system installed in your home. That way, you will be able to completely control the temperature of the upper level on its own system. This may cost more upfront, but you will see a savings in keeping that upper level at an even temperature.
