Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Clean Air HVAC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is walk through your home and find out if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on 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 ask an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call Clean Air HVAC to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on 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.
