Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying 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 want air conditioner service and Dearing's Service & Solutions is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like a lack of 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 is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine the arrangements 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 Dearing's Service & Solutions to have a professional duct system examination, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems 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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Dearing's Service & Solutions in Huntingburg to set up air conditioner service. Call 812-200-5844 or set up an appointment today.*
