Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service07/22/2015 Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. 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 Patterson & Stirling Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment. Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system. If the issue is something more significant like needing more 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled. What can you do? Look at 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 preventing continual airflow throughout that room. Call Patterson & Stirling Inc to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we identify. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive 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.
