Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Select Comfort System 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 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 find out 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 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 scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the furniture arrangments 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
