Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

July 22, 2015

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Oak Grove 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 indicate you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more fundamental like not having enough cold air return vents, you should consult 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 going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 preventing uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Oak Grove 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 advice and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 601-292-9763 or set up an appointment today.*
