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 uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Mitchell Heating 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 may be something as easy 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 in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system. If the problem is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled. What can you do? 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 continual airflow throughout that room. Call Mitchell Heating to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we come across. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleared out. Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
