Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient 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 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 issue is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask 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. 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we find.
  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 notice a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning in Bishop to schedule air conditioner service. Call 760-784-9034 or set up an appointment online today.*
