Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Anderson Heating & A/C is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more significant like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Think about 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Anderson Heating & A/C to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we come across.
- 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 see a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.
