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 unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.

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. All you’ll need to do is 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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more fundamental like needing more 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?

  1. Examine 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may see 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.
