Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. 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 require air conditioner service and Heartland Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is walk through your home and see 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 issue is something more fundamental like needing more cold air return vents, you should talk with 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 sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Heartland Heating & Cooling 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 problems we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on 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 cleaned.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Heartland Heating & Cooling in Grimes to set up air conditioner service. Call 515-344-3579 or set up an appointment today.*
