    Default hvac

    I have a 3000 sq.ft. 2 story house with only 1 zone hvac oil fired. The second floor is hot in summer and cold in winter while the first floor is fine. I can't put an oil furnace in attic by code.
    I would like some ideas

    More attic insulation.
    Find out if the airflow to & from the upstairs is adequate.
    Since the upstairs is never satisfied, I guessing a bit of both.

    It'll depend on your duct system but you could zone the home with automatic dampers. I put a 3 zone in my home and it work great.
