Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

As a homeowner, comfort is a top concern. So when you start recognizing hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very frustrating. Not only do hot and cold spots disrupt the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they appear, it can point out that there are other issues. It’s easy to simply propose air conditioner service, but there are a couple things you can take a look at to learn more before the team at Dynamic Comfort Solutions come by.

Hot and cold spots can be the effect of a variety of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as simple as a blocked air vent. For something like the latter, you can walk through every room in your home and check out each and every vent to see whether there is something blocking it. Depending on the arrangement of your furniture, there might be a vent or two that ends up being covered by a night stand or bed, meaning that you’re not getting the full benefit from your heating and cooling system.

For something like inadequate cold air return vents, you’ll want to consult with someone with experience. It can be during routine air conditioner service or in addition to that appointment, but many homes usually only have one cold air return, which may not be sufficient for offering you the even temperatures you want.

What does all this mean for you as a homeowner?

  1. Rethink the layout of the rooms affected by hot and cold spots. There’s a chance that this will fix your problems or at least increase the comfort of the room. If you’ve already noted that there aren’t any vents that are blocked, there is still a chance that the layout of the room and its furniture could hurt the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis set up with the team at Dynamic Comfort Solutions so they can come out and determine the cause of your hot and cold spots. They’ll be able to provide recommendations based on their findings and help outline a plan to solve any issues they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is set aside from air conditioner service, but can make a big impact in your home’s comfort. After all, when was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? It may not resolve all of your hot and cold spot issues, but there can be a marked improvement after the cleaning is completed.

There’s no debate that hot and cold spots are annoying at the very least, but that doesn’t mean you simply have to live with an uncomfortable home. Beyond your comfort, hot and cold spots can also mean your efficiency is less than optimal.
