Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it mildly. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and PWA Heating & Cooling Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean 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 issue is something more fundamental like needing more cold air return vents, you should ask 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 is often not going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call PWA Heating & Cooling Inc to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call PWA Heating & Cooling Inc in Plainfield to schedule air conditioner service. Call 815-768-6656 or set up an appointment online today.*
