Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 in front of one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like needing more 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. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 hindering continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc to have a professional duct system examination, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations 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 see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc in Carpentersville to schedule air conditioner service. Call 224-412-8308 or set up an appointment today.*
