Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Allstar 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 mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and see 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 in front of 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 talk with an expert—whether during a scheduled 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 may not be enough 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we identify.
  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 cleaned.

Stop hot and cold spots from making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning in Buellton to schedule air conditioner service. Call 805-688-4018 or set up an appointment online today.*
