Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

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 point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and US Air Heating and Cooling 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 may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 covered 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 problem is something more significant like needing more cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the layouts 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call US Air Heating and Cooling to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  3. 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 see a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
