Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Winters Heating and Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.
Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as easy 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 blocked 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 concern is something more significant like needing more 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Think about the layouts 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Winters Heating and Cooling to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any issues we come across.
- 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 unobstructed.
