Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. 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 Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and see 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 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. It’s amazing how 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?
- 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
- Call Brooks Heating and 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 recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.
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 Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning in Bossier City to set up air conditioner service. Call 800-COOLING or set up an appointment today.*
