Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it nicely. 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 JTech Mechanical is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.
Hot and cold spots may indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as straightforward 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 blocked by furniture or your child has dropped clothes on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.
If the concern is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Look at 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 inhibiting uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
- Call JTech Mechanical to have a professional duct system examination, 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 come across.
- 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.
There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call JTech Mechanical in Magnolia to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 281-231-8768 or set up an appointment today.*
