Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and James Heating & A/C, Inc 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 inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward 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 obscured 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 problem is something more serious 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call James Heating & A/C, Inc to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any 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 see 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 James Heating & A/C, Inc in Lexington to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 336-853-6070 or set up an appointment online today.*
