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 damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate 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 discover 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a annual 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 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 hindering continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call 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 come across.
  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 notice 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. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call in McHenry to schedule air conditioner service. Call 815-410-1128 or set up an appointment today.*
