Have you ever noticed that while one room of your house is nice and warm, another seems to be utterly frigid? These are called hot and cold spots, and they’re not uncommon in homes. There are things you can do to eliminate them and keep your temperature even throughout. Learn easy and important steps you can take to eliminate cold spots in your Rogers, Arkansas, home and stay comfortable all year long.
Check for Blocked Vents
Blocked vents are both a common cause of hot and cold spots, and at the same time one that’s easy to overlook. Make sure your vents aren’t blocked by furniture or clutter, and that airflow can get into every room easily.
Check for Drafts
Sometimes bad seals around your windows and doors can be the cause of cold spots. Check for broken or cracked seals, and look for sources of drafts that might make your HVAC system less effective overall. Simply by resealing windows and doors and covering cracks, you’ll find your system’s effectiveness increases dramatically.
Check Your Thermostat
Do you have an old thermostat that’s not programmable? Replacing it with one or more smart thermostats that also allow you to use zone heating can fix a lot of issues. When you use multi-zone heating, you’re applying multiple thermostats to adjust the temperature in different rooms at specific times. It both warms those cold spots and saves money on heating costs.
HVAC System Maintenance
HVAC system maintenance is essential to keeping your house temperature even and maintained all year long. Having a professional come in to inspect your system, clean the ducts, oil the motor, and remove dust and debris can be an essential step in not only eliminating cold spots but saving you money on a more energy-efficient system.
