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 be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Lanz Furnace and Fireplace is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 what you need from your heating and cooling system.
If the concern is something more serious like needing more 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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.
- Call Lanz Furnace and Fireplace to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any issues we find.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.
