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 unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Alltemp Comfort Services LLC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require 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 obscured by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like needing more cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 preventing continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Alltemp Comfort Services LLC to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions 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 troubles 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Alltemp Comfort Services LLC in Columbia to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 803-318-6995 or set up an appointment online today.*
