Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Cool Air Solutions is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many 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?

  1. Examine the furniture arrangments 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Cool Air Solutions to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Cool Air Solutions in Murrieta to schedule air conditioner service. Call 951-299-9853 or set up an appointment today.*
