Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it mildly. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning 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 insufficient 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 see 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 in front of one, you’re not getting the most from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask 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 enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the layouts 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 uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning 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 positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your problems with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

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 iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning in Chicago to schedule air conditioner service. Call 773-704-0640 or set up an appointment online today.*
