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 say the least. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Contra Costa Heating & AC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is walk through your home and see 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 the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more fundamental like a lack of 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. Many 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 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Contra Costa Heating & AC to have a professional duct system examination, 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 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 issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Contra Costa Heating & AC in the Bay Area to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 510-343-9841 or set up an appointment today.*
