Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and B & G HVAC 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 inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and discover 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental 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. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 inhibiting uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call B & G HVAC 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 issues we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on 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.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call B & G HVAC in Marshalltown to set up air conditioner service. Call 641-323-1210 or set up an appointment today.*
