Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Air Quality Solutions 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 ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy 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 in front of one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.
If the concern is something more serious like needing more 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 going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Think about the furniture 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.
- Call Air Quality Solutions to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
