Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Scott Temperature is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should ask 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 may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Scott Temperature to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be 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 set up air conditioner service. Call 785-269-0465 or set up an appointment today.*
