Hot and cold spots in your home can be bothersome to say the least. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need 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 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 that are blocking one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.
If the problem is something more serious like a lack of cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a scheduled air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This is often not going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.
What can you do?
- Think about the furniture 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 continual airflow throughout that room.
- Call Lycoming Heating Company to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can get to the root of your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any problems we identify.
- Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to 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 cleared out.
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 schedule air conditioner service. Call 570-244-2510 or set up an appointment today.*
