Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it mildly. 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 Air Max HVAC Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require 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 obscured 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 issue is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask 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 enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Air Max HVAC Inc to have a professional duct system analysis, 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 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 cleaned.

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 Air Max HVAC Inc in Thousand Oaks to set up air conditioner service. Call 805-217-8662 or set up an appointment online today.*
