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 uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Ben Maines Air Conditioning, 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 insufficient number of cold air return vents or it may be something as easy as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the concern is something more significant like needing more 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. A lot of homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at 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 Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc. to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you advice and help you resolve any problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a big impact on your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive 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 discovered hot and cold spots in your home, call Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc. in Longview to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 903-758-0701 or set up an appointment online today.*
