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 indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Durable Service is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more significant like not having enough 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. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine the furniture 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Durable Service to have a professional duct system evaluation, 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 find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Durable Service in Holdrege to set up air conditioner service. Call 308-995-8177 or set up an appointment today.*
