Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate 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 consider before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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. This is often not going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. 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 preventing 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 advice 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 issues with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

Stop hot and cold spots from 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 arrange for air conditioner service. Call 815-410-1231 or set up an appointment today.*
