Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

As a homeowner, comfort is paramount. So when you start feeling hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very irritating. Not only do hot and cold spots disrupt the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they happen, it can mean that there are other concerns. It’s easy to simply recommend air conditioner service, but there are a few things you can take a look at to learn more before the team at A2Z Air Inc come by.

Hot and cold spots may be the effect of a number of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as basic as a blocked air vent. For something like the latter, you can walk through every room in your home and check out each and every vent to see whether there is something blocking it. Depending on the arrangement of your furniture, there might be a vent or two that ends up being covered by a night stand or bed, meaning that you’re not reaping the full benefit from your heating and cooling system.

For something like inadequate cold air return vents, you’ll want to consult with someone with experience. It can be during routine air conditioner service or in addition to that appointment, but many homes usually only have one cold air return, which may not be sufficient for giving you the even temperatures expected.

What does all this mean for you as a homeowner?

  1. Revisit the layout of the rooms that have hot and cold spots. There’s a chance that this will fix your problems or at least boost the comfort of the room. If you’ve already determined that there aren’t any vents that are blocked, there is still a chance that the layout of the room and its furniture could inhibit the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis arranged with the experts at A2Z Air Inc so they can come out and determine the cause of your hot and cold spots. They’ll be able to provide recommendations based on their findings and help set a plan to fix any issues they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is separate from air conditioner service, but can make a big impact in your home’s comfort. After all, when was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? It may not solve all of your hot and cold spot issues, but there can be a noted improvement after the cleaning is finished.

There’s no debate that hot and cold spots are irritating at the very least, but that doesn’t mean you must live with an uncomfortable home. Beyond your comfort, hot and cold spots can also mean your efficiency is less than optimal.
