Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

As a homeowner, comfort is paramount. So when you start recognizing hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very frustrating. Not only do hot and cold spots hurt the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they happen, it can mean that there are other problems. It’s easy to simply recommend air conditioner service, but there are some things you can take a look at to learn more before the experts at B&W Services come by.

Hot and cold spots could be the effect of a variety of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as easy as a blocked air vent. For something like the latter, you can walk through every room in your home and look at each and every vent to see whether there is something blocking it. Depending on the way you set up your furniture, there may 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 a pro. It can be during routine air conditioner service or in addition to that appointment, but many homes normally only have one cold air return, which may not be sufficient for giving you the even temperatures you desire.

What does all this mean for you as a homeowner?

  1. Revisit the layout of the rooms having issues with hot and cold spots. There’s a chance that this will fix your problems or at least improve 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 hurt the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis scheduled with the team at B&W Services so they can come out and find 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 problems they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is set aside 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 fix all of your hot and cold spot annoyances, but there can be a noticeable improvement after the cleaning is completed.

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