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 indicate 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 consider 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 may be 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 maximum efficiency from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more significant like not having enough 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 is often not 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 inhibiting uninterrupted 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 recommendations and help you resolve any potential problems we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement 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 unobstructed.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient. If you’ve located hot and cold spots in your home, call Lycoming Heating Company in Williamsport to schedule air conditioner service. Call 570-244-2510 or set up an appointment today.*
