Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and True Home Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy 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 on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like a lack of 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. This is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the furniture arrangments 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call True Home Heating and 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 recommendations 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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

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