Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to say the least. 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air 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 indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 covered 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 serious like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask 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 is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Paso Robles Heating and Air in Paso Robles to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 805-203-8667 or set up an appointment today.*
