Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Stieferman Heating Company Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be 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 on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult 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. This is often not enough 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Stieferman Heating Company Inc to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement 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 unobstructed.

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 Stieferman Heating Company Inc in Jefferson City to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 573-203-3908 or set up an appointment today.*
