The air quality on the top floor is not good
The air quality on the top floor of our house is just not good lately.
I do not know what’s going on up there, but I think that there might be something wrong with our ventilation system. At first, I thought that it was a problem with our furnace. But our oil furnace is relatively new and the rest of the house stays warm all the time the way that it is supposed to. It’s just the upstairs that seems to be having issues this winter. When I called our local heating and cooling company to ask them what they thought the problem might be, they said that they would have to come out and take a look at it, but that it sounded like we were having trouble with our ductwork and not with our oil furnace. I did not want to do it, but I went ahead and made an appointment with them because something has to be done. Our kids all sleep on the top floor of our house, and it is really freezing cold up there. If it was closer to springtime, then I probably would have just let it go. However, usually the weather does not start heating up around here until the middle of May. We have very long winters around here, and the temperatures are still really cold outside. That means that the upstairs of our house is frigid, especially at night whenever everyone is trying to sleep. I’m hoping that it is a simple fix and they just need to do some ductwork sealing or something like that.
