Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy 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 obscured 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 needing more 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. This may not be 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause 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 positive change 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 cleared out.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
