Heat issue in the office

Hi folks,

I recently purchased a home that's a 1.5 story. The only room upstairs is an office. Being May, i have begin to notice that my 2 computers in the day/evening really heat up the office to the point where it's a bit uncomfortable.

about the office upstairs:

1. the whole house has a single AC unit.
2. office specifically has 1 return and 2 vents for heat/ac
3. has ceiling fan
4. room is roughly 14 x 20
5. Thermastat is downstairs and not designed to switch

An idea that i had, was to get maybe 1 or 2 bathroom fans (if i can find some silent ones) and put them on the ceiling in the office. Turn the fan on, cause a vacuum situation in the office and hopefully pull the colder air from downstairs.

I'm looking for any solution but low cost / maintenance would be my preference. I'm looking for a good way to get that nice cool air downstairs to this office.

Go to thermostat. Turn fan switch to on.

See if that helps any.

Doubt it will keep the room cool when you get to the hot months. But might be bearable.
