Burning Up

Hello, I appreciate your help in advance.

I have a two story house with seperate electric heating systems for each story.

The floor level is fine, the temp is stable and rarely needs to be adjusted, but the upper floor is another story.

The master bedroom is a virtual sauna. Every other room in the upstairs is a bit cold, but not too bad, but the master bedroom is burning hot.

We have all the vents open, except those in the bedroom, which are 1/2 open (they do not close all the way).

What should I do, we cannot go on like this, we end up sleeping on the couch at night.

If possible, the best solution is probably to have dampers added to the supply lines going into the master bedroom. The mechanisms on the vents themselves don't usually work well at gating output. Half closed may not do much more than push the air out in a different direction. You may also want to run the fan continuously or on a timed cycle as some thermostats allow.
