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 indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Bell Air Conditioning Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and find out 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a routine 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 going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the furniture arrangments 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 Bell Air Conditioning 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 potential problems we identify.
  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 notice 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 found hot and cold spots in your home, call Bell Air Conditioning Inc. in Belton to set up air conditioner service. Call 254-307-9572 or set up an appointment today.*
