Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment.
Hot and cold spots could mean you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is 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 maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- 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 preventing continual airflow throughout that room.
- Call Strine's 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 recommendations and help you resolve any issues we identify.
- 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 perceive 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 located hot and cold spots in your home, call Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning in York to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 717-383-4479 or set up an appointment today.*
