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 nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as straightforward 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. 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 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 inhibiting continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of 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 positive change to 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 unobstructed.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
