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 want air conditioner service and Point Heating & Cooling is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean 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 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more serious like a lack of 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about the layouts 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 preventing continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Point Heating & Cooling 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 potential problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Point Heating & Cooling in Plover to schedule air conditioner service. Call 715-345-1979 or set up an appointment online today.*
