  • Handle Hot and Cold Spots

Uneven hot and cold spots are a common problem for Port Charlotte, Florida, homeowners. If you’ve found that your heating and cooling isn’t consistent throughout your home, there are several things that may help with your problem. Make sure you address these key points to improve comfort levels throughout your home.

Optimize Air Flow

One of the easiest ways to minimize hot and cold spots is to improve your air flow. Locate all the registers in your home and make sure they’re not obstructed by furniture, curtains, or other items. Trace the path from your air register into the living space. Does the air have a clear path to follow from one room to another? Rearranging your furniture may help eliminate uneven heating and cooling. A well-placed fan can push air effectively from one area to another or keep it circulating for more even comfort in the home.

Check Your System Sizing

If your home came with its current HVAC system, you may not know whether it’s properly sized. A system that’s too large will cycle on and off frequently, shutting down before heating and cooling have had time to efficiently spread to all corners of the home. An undersized system may run constantly without ever delivering the desired temperatures. Consult with our HVAC technicians to make sure your system is the right size for your home.

Schedule Your Next Tune-Up

If your heating and cooling system don’t receive their annual tune-ups, they won’t operate at peak efficiency. You should have these systems serviced once a year. During your maintenance visit, our technicians will thoroughly clean and inspect the system. They’ll tighten electrical connections, lubricate moving parts, and make sure everything is working as it should to deliver even temperatures in your home.

Whether you need a regular maintenance visit or you suspect that it’s time for a new cooling or heating installation, Island Aire of Southwest FL can help. Give us a call at 239-935-8880 to explore how we can help you get more even temperatures in your home.
