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 nicely. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and True Temp Heating & Air Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and find out 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 the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like not having enough 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call True Temp Heating & Air 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 issues we come across.
  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 see 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 found hot and cold spots in your home, call True Temp Heating & Air Inc in Chatsworth to schedule air conditioner service. Call 706-695-7492 or set up an appointment today.*
