Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. 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 Mayeuxs AC & Heating 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 insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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 hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call Mayeuxs AC & Heating to have a professional duct system examination, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change 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 unobstructed.
There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
