Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate 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 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 problem is something more fundamental like not having enough 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. Many 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. Look at the furniture arrangments 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling in Bountiful to schedule air conditioner service. Call 801-295-3357 or set up an appointment online today.*
