Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Street Heating and Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient 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 the most 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. A lot of 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 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Street Heating and Cooling to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change 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 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 Street Heating and Cooling in Rapid City to set up air conditioner service. Call 605-206-3915 or set up an appointment today.*
