Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and B & G HVAC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try 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 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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about the furniture arrangments 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call B & G HVAC to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call B & G HVAC in Marshalltown to set up air conditioner service. Call 641-752-3429 or set up an appointment online today.*
