Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to say the least. They can be uncomfortable, 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is 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 what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more significant like needing more cold air return vents, you should consult 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 going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. 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 preventing uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
