Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, 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 Gordon Air Conditioning is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask 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. This is often not sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Gordon Air Conditioning to have a professional duct system evaluation, 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 see a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

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 Gordon Air Conditioning in Crestview to set up air conditioner service. Call 850-682-5509 or set up an appointment online today.*
