Fixing a cold basement
Question from Karl: My basement gets too cold when I turn the Air Conditioner on to cool the upstairs rooms in the summer. How can I fix this?
- Make sure the door at the top of the stairs is closed, cold air likes to fall.
- Make sure you have adequate return air on the upper levels of your home. Hot air likes to rise and proper return air helps to re-circulate.
- Check for any leaks in your duct work and close any registers.
- Insulate your duct work.
Hopefully these ideas will help you.
