Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like a lack of 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be going 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 preventing uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing 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 troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may notice 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.
