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 damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and see 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more fundamental like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the 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 inhibiting uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc in Rapid City to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 605-342-5107 or set up an appointment online today.*
