Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. 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 Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.
Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple 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 on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.
If the concern is something more serious like not having enough 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. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at the layouts 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 inhibiting continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Freed Heating & Air Conditioning 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 problems we find.
- 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 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. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 309-323-9584 or set up an appointment today.*
