Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. 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 need air conditioner service and Patterson & Stirling Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean 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 blocked 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 problem is something more serious like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. It’s amazing how 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?
- 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 hindering 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 issues we identify.
- 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 cleaned.
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 Patterson & Stirling Inc in Erie to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 814-308-0416 or set up an appointment today.*
