Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Service Plus Mechanical is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider 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 straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 inhibiting continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Service Plus Mechanical to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we find.
  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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

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 Service Plus Mechanical in Aurora to schedule air conditioner service. Call 630-809-6319 or set up an appointment online today.*
