Have you ever left your perfectly warm and comfortable bedroom to head out to the living room, only to immediately feel the need to put on a pair of socks or a sweater once you're there? Unfortunately, cold spots are common in many homes and can be a nuisance in the cooler winter months.
Here are some tips from our HVAC pros at Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling on how to prevent cold spots and keep your home comfortable year-round.
The way your home is built. The structure of your home has a significant impact on cold spots in your home, including how many windows your home has, how much sun it receives, its amount of insulation, and its floor plan. For example, a room that lacks sufficient insulation will be chilly.
How your ductwork was installed. Your ductwork can cause inconsistent temperatures in your home, especially if it was improperly designed or installed. When put in correctly, ductwork spreads heated and cooled air equally to all parts of your home. If not, you'll experience hot or cold spots.
Ensure that your vents aren't blocked. Sometimes a room has a cold spot simply because something is in front of an air vent. Ensure all of your supply vents and cold air returns are clear of furniture, boxes, and other obstructions, so that air has a free path to flow into the room.
Feel for drafts. Sometimes a cold spot is caused by a draft coming from a cracked or old window seal. Inspect your doors and windows for leaks and feel around for drafts elsewhere that could be working against your HVAC system.
Inspect your insulation. Though your insulation is a seldom-seen part of your home, it's crucial for maintaining the comfort level of your home. If you think that there's an issue with your insulation, call one of our HVAC professionals to come out and inspect your insulation. We'll be able to alert you of any problems with your insulation and ductwork and evaluate whether you are losing energy.
Install a zoned system. One of the most effective ways to avoid cold spots in your home is to invest in a modern thermostat and multi-zone heating and cooling. Zoning involves thermostats throughout your home that control specific dampers in your air ducts, making it easy to adjust temperatures for different rooms based on your comfort and needs. Not only does a zoned system help with cold spots, but it'll help you save money on your energy bill, too!
Schedule preventative maintenance and duct cleaning. Seasonal preventative furnace maintenance gives you the peace of mind that your system is working properly and will reveal any potential issues before they become serious threats to your comfort and safety. Duct cleaning isn't something that needs to be done frequently, but if you've recently had any renovations done, live in a home with pets, or have never had them cleaned, now is the time.
Stay cozy this fall and winter and prevent hot or cold spots by calling our expert team for preventative HVAC maintenance, duct cleaning, and energy evaluations. We will ensure that your home is heating and cooling efficiently and keeping you comfortable year-round. Schedule HVAC service with Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling today - 330-262-4100!
