Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service07/22/2015 Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Central Air Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about 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 see if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system. If the concern is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many 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? 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 hindering continuous airflow throughout that room. Call Central Air Inc to have a professional duct system examination, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we come across. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned. Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
