A high-quality, effective HVAC system will provide a consistent temperature throughout your home. If you notice cold or hot spots, it is likely that there is a problem with the ductwork system that is causing these irregular temperatures to arise. Here are a few things that can cause cold spots in your home.
When vents are closed or otherwise blocked, they won’t be able to effectively deliver air throughout the building. Some people close their vents under the impression that this will help to save energy in their building. This isn’t true. The HVAC system emits the same amount of energy, even when vents are blocked. This can cause leaks in the air ducts, as well as blower motor issues.
Dirty Air Filter
Air filters must be replaced regularly to ensure that the HVAC system remains in good condition. Most air filters require replacement every 30 to 60 days, depending on many factors within the home. When air filters become dirty, they can reduce the ability of air to penetrate the surface, which puts more pressure on the system and causes it to work less effectively.
Ductwork issues can also cause irregular temperatures inside of your building. When leaks occur in the ductwork, the system won’t be able to effectively move the air throughout the building. Improperly sized equipment, poorly designed ductwork, or insufficient insulation often cause cold or hot spots throughout the building. When the issue is caused by the duct system of your building, you will likely need to obtain professional services to restore your system’s functionality.
A consistent temperature in your building is important in ensuring that every space within the building remains comfortable. If you have noticed the presence of cold spots in your building, you should contact our office to ensure that the issue can be resolved efficiently.
