Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Air Houston Mechanical LLC 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 inadequate 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 see 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 concern is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a annual 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 is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 hindering continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Air Houston Mechanical LLC to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we find.
  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 see a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 832-777-1521 or set up an appointment today.*
