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 need air conditioner service and Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and find out 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more significant like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 preventing continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may see 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC in Hamilton to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 513-268-5164 or set up an appointment today.*
