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 mildly. They can be unpleasant, 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 Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like needing more 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. This is often not going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 inhibiting continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice 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 problems with hot and cold spots, but you may see 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating in Laguna Niguel to set up air conditioner service. Call 949-525-9119 or set up an appointment today.*
