    Default cooling home office/computer gaming room

    I got 26 year old house with a central air system. I have a home office that is about 12 by 12. The problem I am having is the office is usually 10-12 degrees warmer than the rest of the house (and I'm not even using all of my toys yet due to the heat). No matter what I set the thermostat the office temp never reaches something comfortable. The rest of the house is just fine and the office isn't too bad until I start playing games or working and these sessions can last 12 hours straight.

    I thought about a window-unit just for that room but the office is on the street side and it would be unsightly and probably loud. I def. don't want excessive sound to drown out the game sounds.

    Currently I have the ceiling fan on reverse to pull the hot air up and I have a box fan blowing the colder hallway air into the room.

    I'm not going to lie, I really don't know much about "homes" since this is my first one and I've only lived here three months.

    Thanks for any help.

    How is the supply air?? Is it working and is the damper opened all the way?? 12 X 12 you should probably have two 6" supplies and and a return in that room if you don't have one all ready. I can't see your house from here but I would check airflow first. Good Luck!!

    With the excess heat (from the toys, etc.) I would recommend a mini-split A/C system. Or maybe the house could be zoned? About the same cost. Good luck.
