Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Faust Air Conditioning and 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 inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and discover 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 that are blocking 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 talk with 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. This may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at the furniture 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Faust Air Conditioning and Heating to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we come across.
- 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 see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
