Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Lakeside Heating & Air is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.
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 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 serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a scheduled 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 is often not sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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 hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call Lakeside Heating & Air to have a professional duct system evaluation, 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 notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
