Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 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 concern is something more significant like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult 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?
- Look at the layouts 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.
- Call Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we identify.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.
There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
