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 damaging to your home comfort, 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 Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice 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 issues 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.
