Nothing can be more annoying during the winter months than stack effect. Stack effect is a common problem when your home’s heat rises to the second story and leaves your first floor cold.
Think of it like the second story is stealing the blanket.
While it’s true that hot air rises, it isn’t just the air that’s leaving your first floor frozen. Here are some other major factors that can contribute to this icy issue.
- Your HVAC system is getting too old.
- Your attic isn’t properly sealed.
- Your treeline is blocking the sun.
