Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Kelley Mechanical is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots could mean 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 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 maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual 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 sufficient to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Kelley Mechanical to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems 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 perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Kelley Mechanical in Lexington to schedule air conditioner service. Call 859-209-3003 or set up an appointment today.*
