Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

As a homeowner, comfort is key. So when you start recognizing hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very frustrating. Not only do hot and cold spots disrupt the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they show up, it can indicate that there are other issues. It’s easy to simply propose air conditioner service, but there are some things you can take a look at to learn more before the pros at Air Quality Solutions pay you a visit.

Hot and cold spots can be the effect of a host of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as easy as a blocked air vent. For something like the latter, you can walk through every room in your home and look at each and every vent to see whether there is something blocking it. Depending on the layout of your furniture, there might be a vent or two that ends up being covered by a night stand or bed, meaning that you’re not reaping the full benefit from your heating and cooling system.

For something like inadequate cold air return vents, you’ll want to talk with someone with experience. It can be during routine air conditioner service or in addition to that appointment, but many homes usually only have one cold air return, which may not be sufficient for offering you the even temperatures you want.

What does all this mean for you as a homeowner?

  1. Rethink the layout of the rooms affected by hot and cold spots. There’s a chance that this will resolve your problems or at least boost the comfort of the room. If you’ve already determined that there aren’t any vents that are blocked, there is still a chance that the layout of the room and its furniture could decrease the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis arranged with the team at Air Quality Solutions so they can come out and uncover the cause of your hot and cold spots. They’ll be able to offer recommendations based on their findings and help arrange a plan to solve any concerns they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is apart from air conditioner service, but can make a big impact in your home’s comfort. After all, when was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? It may not fix all of your hot and cold spot problems, but there can be a noticeable improvement after the cleaning is completed.

There’s no debate that hot and cold spots are irritating at the very least, but that doesn’t mean you have not choice but to live with an uncomfortable home. Beyond your comfort, hot and cold spots can also mean your efficiency is less than its best.
