Most air ducts have dampers which help to regulate the flow of warm air in your home. Sometimes you can adjust these dampers by moving a lever on the outside of the duct. If this is the case, close off dampers in areas of your home that are quite warm. These adjustments should result in a more balanced temperature in your home. Add Cold-Air Returns
Adding cold-air returns can improve the flow of air in your home which will maximize the effectiveness of your heating system. A competent HVAC professional can evaluate your current heating system and determine if more cold-air returns are necessary.
