Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and B & B Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.
Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be 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 covered 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 significant like a lack of 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. It’s amazing how many 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?
- 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.
- Call B & B Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential 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 issues with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.
