Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Knoechel Heating Company is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try 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 find out if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two blocked 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 fundamental 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. 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Knoechel Heating Company to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
