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 uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before we come out.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 on one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like not having enough 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. It’s amazing how 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?

  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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any potential 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 problems with hot and cold spots, but you may notice a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
