Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

As a homeowner, comfort is key. So when you start feeling hot and cold spots in your home, they can quickly become very annoying. Not only do hot and cold spots impact the environment you’ve worked so hard to get right, but when they appear, it can mean that there are other issues. It’s easy to simply recommend air conditioner service, but there are a few things you can take a look at to learn more before the team at Branson HVAC, LLC come out.

Hot and cold spots may be the product of a host of things, ranging from an inadequate amount of cold air return vents to something as basic 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 layout of your furniture, there may be a vent or two that ends up being covered by a night stand or bed, meaning that you’re not receiving the full benefit from your heating and cooling system.

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

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 improve the comfort of the room. If you’ve already determined that there aren’t any vents that are blocked, there is still a chance that the layout of the room and its furniture could inhibit the flow of air in the room.
  2. You should get a professional duct system analysis scheduled with the pros at Branson HVAC, LLC so they can come out and uncover 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 problems they find.
  3. Get your ducts cleaned. This is apart 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 solve all of your hot and cold spot annoyances, but there can be a marked improvement after the cleaning is finished.

There’s no debate that hot and cold spots are a headache at the very least, but that doesn’t mean you must live with an uncomfortable home. Beyond your comfort, hot and cold spots might also mean your efficiency is less than its best.
