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 put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Goode Bros AC & Heating is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and see 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 problem is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 enough 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Goode Bros AC & Heating to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Goode Bros AC & Heating in Katy to set up air conditioner service. Call (833)-466-3322 or set up an appointment today.*
