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 require 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 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. All you’ll need to do is 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 on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like needing more cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. 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 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 inhibiting continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions 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 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning in Bishop to set up air conditioner service. Call 760-784-9034 or set up an appointment today.*
