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 point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Brogan Heating & AC Inc is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it may be something as simple 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 covered 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 problem is something more fundamental like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. A lot of 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. Look at 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations 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 troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may notice 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc in Rochester to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 507-218-0088 or set up an appointment today.*
