Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Scott Temperature is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and discover 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about the furniture arrangments 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 inhibiting uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Scott Temperature to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues 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 unobstructed.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Scott Temperature in Lawrence to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 785-843-2244 or set up an appointment online today.*
