Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Assured Appliance and Heating & Air 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 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 on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like not having enough 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. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 Assured Appliance and Heating & Air to have a professional duct system analysis, 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 big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Assured Appliance and Heating & Air in Genoa to schedule air conditioner service. Call 847-306-8990 or set up an appointment today.*
