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 be a symptom of problems with your heating and cooling system. You may need air conditioner service and Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can consider before we come out.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an ineffective 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 discover 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 what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like a lack of cold air return vents, you should talk with an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. Many homes have only a single cold air return. This may not be going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 issues 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 see a big improvement once your vents are cleaned.

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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Oxford to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 662-350-0343 or set up an appointment today.*
