Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

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 need air conditioner service and Central Heating & Plumbing is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is 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 what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like a lack of 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. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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.
  2. Call Central Heating & Plumbing to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we identify.
  3. 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 cleaned.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
