In many two-story homes, the upstairs area is considerably warmer than the main floor. The reason for this is simple – heat rises. The thermostat is typically located on the main floor; so when this level reaches the set temperature, the air conditioning turns off. The heat from the first floor rises to the second. Heat from the attic also causes the temperature to rise on the second floor. Because the heat leaves the main level, this area stays cool longer, thus not asking the air conditioning system to run. This cycle continues all day as the temperature upstairs continues to rise. All of these factors can lead to a very uncomfortable area to live and sleep. There are a number of things that can be done to reduce or even eliminate this condition. Every home is different, so the potential for correcting this problem varies based upon these differences. Economy Heating, Air Conditioning, and Plumbing is trained and experienced in the proper way to deal with this situation.
