Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying 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 Anderson Heating & A/C is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more serious like needing more 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. 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 arrangements 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 Anderson Heating & A/C to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any issues we find.
  3. 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 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.
