    Default basement is cold while a/c is on

    We have a 3 story townhouse (basement, 1st floor, 2nd floor)while the whole house is set to a comfortable temperature of 68 degrees the basement is always so much colder (feels like 10 degrees colder). The basement is finished and we cant use it because its cold, we are at a loss and we don't know what to do. The man cave is getting neglected, can you please help us?

    You could go to the supply dampers and close them a little bit, if that doesn't work just close them a little more. Or if you want to spend a few bucks you could have you townhouse zoned

    I would be better if you got an HVAC Contractor to install zone valves and control board, it's not a DIY job. Cost would depend on what he needs for material and labor involved, $1500.00 more or less. It's not a major job but get a few quotes, about 5 and if you don't already have a company that does work on your system call around and try to get someone reputable
