i have a small tudor cottage with 4 finished floors. the furnace is located in the attic and the system is not zoned. my hvac contractor installed the system in the heat of the summer without thinking about the winter needs. now that it's getting cold. the 4th floor (small office in attic) where the furnace is, is typically 94 degrees. the 3rd floor (bedroom level) is 77 degrees with all the vents closed. the 2nd level (main living) is about 67 degrees, and the ground level (family room) is about 60 degrees. We get no air supply to the ground floor (only one register and not enough air volume). we have all the registers open on the 2nd floor. i come to find out that he didnt install dampers to the vents on the third floor and with the registers closed it sounds like a jet engine.
We can not live like this b/c we're always putting on/taking off sweatshirts to run between floors.
Can there be anything done?? all the walls are closed in so i dont know how he can now install dampers.
please help!!!
