Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance 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 want air conditioner service and House of Heating Incorporated 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 may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more significant like not having enough 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. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call House of Heating Incorporated to have a professional duct system analysis, 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.
  3. 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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield to schedule air conditioner service. Call 715-384-3163 or set up an appointment today.*
