upstairs hotter then downstairs..

I know the basic rule of heat rises.. but how much hotter should upstairs be then downstairs? its like a difference of 15 degrees.. (about 5 steps; split level house) i have tried to close vents down stairs to force more cold air up stairs, doesnt seem to work... could this be an issue with insulation in my attic? Or is this just normal...

could be a dumb question but just wondering... thanks!

Could be insulation problems.

Also good chance its duct work related.
As above.

Check insulation in attic.
Also check that sofit vents are unobstructed.
