Not to mention downstairs was like 80. So the only change I have done so far was adding a cold air return at oposite end corner of ranch, away from stairway. If that works I will add another return vent at other corner of ranch on same end.
Good plan RR. Also a good approach because many times people try and make the register for what they think is heat rising through it when in fact you need to find the coldest spot and put the return right there for the cold air to sink. Once you get that circulation working, the warm air will replace the sinking cold just like magic.
