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 nicely. They can be unpleasant, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Schagrin Gas Company is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try 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 straightforward 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 on 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 consult 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t sufficient 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 hindering continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Schagrin Gas Company to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice 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 troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

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 Schagrin Gas Company in Middletown to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 302-658-2000 or set up an appointment online today.*
