For some reason, the A/C on the top floor won’t work

I don’t know what the problem is, but for some reason, the heating and cooling system on the top floor of our house just refuses to work correctly.

I am fully aware of the fact that heat rises and that’s probably why the temperature on the top floor of the house is always a little bit warmer than it is in the rest of the house, but it shouldn’t ever get to be as bad as it actually is. The temperature gets so hot up there that no one ever wants to stay up there in the guest room or hang out in the little entertainment loft area that I worked so hard to get set up last summer. It makes me sad, because that area of the house is so cute and yet nobody ever wants to go up there and use it because it’s always so hot and stuffy up there. I try to get my kids to go up there and hang out with their friends since that’s the reason that I fixed it up for them in the first place. However, they always look at me like I’m crazy because they know that it feels like the inside of a furnace up there whenever it’s just a little bit warm outside. I just don’t understand it. I think that there must be a problem with the ventilation ducts up there on the top floor. I wasn’t around whenever the HVAC contractors were working on the air ducts and the ventilation system on our house. We bought the house whenever it was already finished and so we didn’t have anything to do with the construction on the house, including the HVAC system.
