Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Colvin's Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and discover if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more serious like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be sufficient 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 preventing uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Colvin's Inc to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any issues 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 problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice 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 Colvin's Inc in Excelsior Springs to set up air conditioner service. Call 816-630-2702 or set up an appointment online today.*
