Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Home Comfort Heating & Air is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and discover if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine the furniture arrangments of the rooms that have hot and cold spots. Even if vents aren’t directly blocked, the arrangement of furniture in each room could be inhibiting continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Home Comfort Heating & Air to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
