Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Wallpe Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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?

  1. Think about 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Wallpe Heating & Cooling to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we find.
  3. 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 notice a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Wallpe Heating & Cooling in Greensburg to set up air conditioner service. Call 812-638-4232 or set up an appointment today.*
