Why should I sleeve my chimney?
Warm, moist air can hit the cold chimney wall causing water droplets to form on the inside of your chimney. Condensation was not a problem with your older, less-efficient furnace because more of the heat produced escaped up the chimney. In higher-efficiency furnaces, exhaust gases in your chimney react chemically with the excess moisture to form corrosive acids. Moisture can seep into cracks in the bricks and mortar. The moisture freezes and thaws, and could cause chunks of tile and chimney to break loose. This debris could actually block the ventilation system, causing a potentially harmful situation. Water could even drip back into your furnace, causing it to corrode. A properly vented furnace can eliminate these risks.
What can I do if my upstairs is too hot in the summer?
You could probably use an attic fan. With an attic fan, your electric bills will be reduced and air conditioning will operate less frequently. They will also remove moisture laden air from the attic in winter, eliminating moisture buildup and subsequent damage to the roof sheeting and insulation. An attic fan will remove super heated air from the attic in summer and extend the roof life.
If you already have an attic fan, check the duct vents (registers) and make sure they are all open on the second level. You might want to close some on the first level to move air upstairs. You could also put your furnace fan on continuously instead of on auto. This will distribute the air in your house more evenly. If you close your doors on the upper levels it will keep more cool air in the bedrooms.
