Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. 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 H&C Heating and 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 could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 issue is something more fundamental 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 going 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call H&C Heating and Cooling to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we identify.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to 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.
