Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Cytech Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and see 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 in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like needing more 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the arrangements 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Cytech Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice 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 issues with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

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