Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying 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 Econo Air is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
- Call Econo Air to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
- 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 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 Econo Air in Southern California to schedule air conditioner service. Call (714) 695-6661 or set up an appointment online today.
