Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/No A/C reaching bedroom


Hello Jim:

I had a new a/c fitted in the house and it's great until i go to the bedroom where it only trickles in:
I have no idea other than turn the whole thing up - which seems silly as the whole house gets colder and the bedroom just a little colder...

please advise - got no sleep as it's too hot in Miami

thank you


Hi Rachel, did your old system have A/C? If so did you have the same problem?

The first thing I would do is check the duct work around the furnace and see if you can find any dampers. Depending on if you have a 1 story or 2 story house there should be 2 of them.

Let me know what you find.   JIM

I can answer questions on gas or electric furnaces, ac units and heat pumps. I don't work on boilers,chillers,or home appliances.


I have been in the HVAC trade for over 35 years. For the past 15 years I have owned my own business. I am semi-retired so I can answer questions in a timely manner.

I attended trade school for 5 years on weekends and evenings. This was very hard to do, but well worth it!
