If you’re experiencing hot and cold spots around your Cheverly, Maryland, home, your heating and cooling systems aren’t working as they should. There are several problems that can create uneven temperatures in your home. Watch for these common causes and take action to get the even comfort you deserve.
The Filter is Clogged
The air filter in your air conditioner or heater is crucial for maintaining clean, healthy air, but it can’t do its job if it’s clogged. Change the filter immediately if you’re noticing hot and cold spots in the home, as this could be the result of a lack of airflow. You should change your filter at least once every three months. If you have a lot of dust, dander, or pet hair in your home, you may need to change it more often. Check the filter monthly to look for a visible buildup of dirt.
You Have Leaky Ductwork
Your ducts should be delivering a steady supply of air throughout the home, but hot and cold spots are often a sign that air isn’t moving efficiently through your space. Over time, ducts typically develop cracks and can allow air to leak through. Stop the escape of air by scheduling an Aeroseal duct sealing with us at Griffith Energy Services. We can help you improve energy efficiency up to 30% by keeping steady airflow throughout your home.
Your System is the Wrong Size
It’s important to size your furnace or air conditioner properly when you have a new system installed. If your home wasn’t professionally sized, you may have a system that’s too large or too small. Griffith Energy Services performs careful load calculations to make sure new installations are the right size for the home. We can inspect your current system and find out if a larger or smaller installation would eliminate the hot and cold spots you’re experiencing.
