One of the more common problems we encounter in the summer is customers complaining that their second or third floor rooms are too warm even when the air conditioning system is running properly. There are a couple of reasons for this. First of all, heat rises and cold air falls. Secondly, most system thermostats are located on the lower floors. In the 1st instance, all of the heat in your home rises to the top floor and tends to stay there. In the second scenario, your thermostat will call for your system to come on when the temperature in your house rises above the “setpoint” (or temperature) and will shut it off when that setpoint is “satisfied” or reached. The problem with that is that your upstairs rooms are most likely still several degrees ABOVE that setpoint, but the thermostat nor your system know that.
Fresh Air Concepts had a customer with just this situation. Their third floor loft bedroom in their 3 story townhome in Pasadena was always hot, even though their system was working properly. We had an effective and cost efficient answer for them. We installed a Carrier ductless mini split system in that bedroom. As the name implies, there was no duct work to run, therefore no drywall patching was necessary.
