Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to say the least. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as straightforward 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more significant like not having enough 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. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not sufficient 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call Kirkfield 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 issues we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems 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.
