Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Northern Comfort Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an insufficient number of cold air return vents or it might require 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 on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should talk with 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 is often not enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Think about 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Northern Comfort Inc to have a professional duct system examination, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
  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 cleared out.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Northern Comfort Inc in Mankato area to set up air conditioner service. Call 507-387-6596 or set up an appointment today.*
