5 Ways to Eliminate Hot and Cold Spots in Your Home

Every room in your home is different, and sometimes they can be different temperatures, too. Here are five ways to eliminate hot and cold spots, and make your home more comfortable.

  1. Make sure your vents aren’t blocked.
    Even if a vent is partially blocked by curtains or furniture, it can create hot and cold spots.
  2. Check for broken seals.
    That cold spot you feel in the living room could be from a draft coming through a window. Check your windows and doors for any broken seals.
  3. Install HVAC Zoning.
    HVAC replacement is the usually a last resort, but many homes have outdated or less efficient HVAC systems, leading to poor air distribution and ventilation. With HVAC Zoning, you can create specific zones throughout the house that connect to their own individual thermostats, making it easier regulate temperatures throughout your home, which will save you money in the long run.
  4. Have your ductwork checked.
    Dusty, dirty ductwork can limit airflow and make certain areas feels warmer or cooler. While a leaky duct can make it nearly impossible to balance the temperature in your home. Good ductwork can eliminate hot and cold spots while improving the efficiency of your HVAC system. It can also improve the air quality of your home.
  5. Insulation. Insulation. Insulation.
    A poorly insulated home makes it difficult to keep your house warm or cool. This not only causes higher electric bills, it can also create uncomfortable hot and cold spots. Have a professional do an evaluation of your home to make sure you have enough insulation.
