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 uncomfortable, 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 Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment.

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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a routine 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 enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to 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 cleaned.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. in Utica to schedule air conditioner service. Call 586-731-0950 or set up an appointment online today.*
