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 be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an ineffective number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 covered 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 concern is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a routine 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?

  1. Examine the arrangements 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.
  2. Call Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we come across.
  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 perceive 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 found hot and cold spots in your home, call Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. in West Palm Beach to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 561-401-0011 or set up an appointment online today.*
