You’re not imagining things — there really can be areas in your home that are warmer or cooler than others. These problem areas, more commonly known as hot or cold spots, can indicate issues with your heating and cooling system. In this blog post, Allison Air Conditioning discusses the most common reasons why you may have hot and cold spots in your home.
Clogged Air Filters
Left unchecked, air filters can become clogged with dirt and other particles. This blockage disrupts airflow and puts a strain on your HVAC system. To avoid this problem, check your air filters regularly and clean or replace them as needed.
How Your Home Was Built
Your home’s structure will affect how hot or cold any given room will get. For example, the side of the house with the most windows will likely be warmer in the mornings and during the hot summer months, even with centralized cooling in place. Similarly, an area without proper air circulation such as a basement or attic might have a slightly different temperature than the rest of the rooms in the house.
Gaps and Cracks
No matter how tiny, any opening (especially around your windows and doors) can upset the stability and uniformity of the temperature inside your home. If you feel a sudden chill or burst of warmth, try checking the nearest door or window for holes, because chances are you have air leaks.
When installed properly, your ductwork should work like a charm, ensuring even heating and cooling throughout your home no matter what the temperature is outside. Needless to say, having a reliable HVAC company such as Allison Air Conditioning to count on greatly reduces the chances that your home will develop hot or cold spots.
