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 be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before we come out.
Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more fundamental 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. 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 inhibiting continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
- 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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
