Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be annoying to put it nicely. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Ilten's Incorporated 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 insufficient number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just 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 on one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more fundamental like needing more 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. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t enough to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Look at the 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 preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Ilten's Incorporated to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can find the cause of your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we find.
  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 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 Ilten's Incorporated in Cedar Rapids to arrange for air conditioner service. Call 319-208-3295 or set up an appointment today.*
