I recently purchased a 2,200 square foot home that includes a second story bonus room (loft). The problem that I am having is that when we run the furnace the upstairs bonus room gets ridiculously hot while the first floor stays comfortable.

I have closed down the registers on the second floor and this does not help at all. This is my first home and I don't have any experience in fixing heating/cooling issues.

Would it be a good idea to look into closing the ducts off upstairs? The house has a Carrier central heating/cooling system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem and wonder if anyone can shed some light on cold air returns. I have a cold air return on the first floor but none on the second. Sounds like this could be your problem also?
