Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

As a homeowner, comfort is key. So when you start recognizing hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very irritating. Not only do hot and cold spots impact the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they happen, it can mean that there are other issues. It’s easy to simply suggest air conditioner service, but there are a few things you can take a look at to learn more before the team at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc come by.

Hot and cold spots can be the result of a variety of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as simple as a blocked air vent. For something like the latter, you can walk through every room in your home and check out each and every vent to see whether there is something blocking it. Depending on the layout of your furniture, there could be a vent or two that ends up being covered by a night stand or bed, meaning that you’re not reaping the full benefit from your heating and cooling system.

For something like inadequate cold air return vents, you’ll want to talk with someone with experience. It can be during routine air conditioner service or in addition to that appointment, but many homes normally only have one cold air return, which may not be sufficient for offering you the even temperatures expected.

What does all this mean for you as a homeowner?

  1. Reconsider the layout of the rooms affected by hot and cold spots. There’s a chance that this will resolve your problems or at least boost the comfort of the room. If you’ve already figured out that there aren’t any vents that are blocked, there is still a chance that the layout of the room and its furniture could inhibit the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis set up with the experts at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc so they can come out and determine the cause of your hot and cold spots. They’ll be able to provide recommendations based on their findings and help outline a plan to resolve any problems they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is apart from air conditioner service, but can make a big impact in your home’s comfort. After all, when was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? It may not solve all of your hot and cold spot problems, but there can be a noted improvement after the cleaning is completed.

There’s no debate that hot and cold spots are irritating at the very least, but that doesn’t mean you simply have to live with an uncomfortable home. Beyond your comfort, hot and cold spots can also mean your efficiency is less than ideal.
