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 need air conditioner service and Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require 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 obscured 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 problem is something more significant like needing more cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a scheduled 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. Look at the layouts 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  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 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 found hot and cold spots in your home, call Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance to schedule air conditioner service. Call 308-646-3827 or set up an appointment today.*
