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 point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need 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 could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue 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 may not be enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. 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.
  2. 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 recommendations and help you resolve any issues 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 problems 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning in Winnipeg to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 204-272-8128 or set up an appointment today.*
