Varying Temperatures in Your House

Updated: Aug 19, 2019

Created by Privette Heating & Air Conditioning Admin


Why is my house hot upstairs and cold downstairs?

This is a frequently asked question. It is a common problem that usually results in people turning down the temperature on their thermostat and still not getting the temperatures they are looking for. Here is why this might be happening in your home:


1. Differences in temperature - Hot air rises and cold air falls. This means that upper floors have a natural tendency to be warmer than lower levels.


2. Hot roof - Your roof absorbs a large amount of heat. All that hot air moves through your roof, into the attic and ultimately into the top floor of your house. If you do not have an attic space to buffer the heat, or your roof is not well insulated; this will increase the temperature in the higher parts of your home.

3. Faulty ductwork - Ducts take cooled air from your HVAC system and distribute it throughout your house. If any ducts were installed poorly, blocked, or are leaking; then your air conditioner will struggle to get the cool air into your home efficiently.


If you’re worried that your air conditioner is not working properly, call us to determine the best solution for your home at 903-797-2678.
