Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to put it nicely. 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 want air conditioner service and Lycoming Heating Company is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as straightforward as unblocking a blocked air vent. All you’ll need to do is walk through your home and discover 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the issue is something more significant like a lack of cold air return vents, you should consult 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. 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Lycoming Heating Company to have a professional duct system analysis, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any potential problems we find.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to 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 unobstructed.

Hot and cold spots shouldn’t be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve found hot and cold spots in your home, call Lycoming Heating Company in Williamsport to set up air conditioner service. Call 570-326-4450 or set up an appointment online today.*
