Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. 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 Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it may be something as straightforward 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency 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. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement 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 cleaned.
There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
