Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is walk through your home and discover 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 in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.
If the issue is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult 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. This is often not enough 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 preventing uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
