Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

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 want air conditioner service and B & B Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more serious like needing more 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 is often not sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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.
  2. Call B & B Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system evaluation, 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.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to 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.

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 B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant to schedule air conditioner service. Call 314-838-9800 or set up an appointment online today.*
