Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may notice 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.
