Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

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 point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Titan Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about the furniture 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Titan Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential 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 problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

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