Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Local HVAC Repair & Service 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 indicate you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like needing more cold air return vents, you should consult 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going 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 inhibiting uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Local HVAC Repair & Service to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential 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 issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Local HVAC Repair & Service in Wheeling to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 224-300-4806 or set up an appointment today.*
