Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to put it mildly. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Ackerman Heating & 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 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 obscured 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 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. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Ackerman Heating & 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 issues we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may notice 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 Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning in Colfax to set up air conditioner service. Call 509-397-3622 or set up an appointment online today.*
