How To Prevent Cold Spots in Your Home


Upon looking at a temperature map of the United States, you may see many different zones with different temperatures. People know not to travel when the temperature gets too hot or too cold somewhere. What happens when your temperature is uneven in your home? It would be best if you addressed this to maximize uniform comfort. Here are some insights on dealing with cold spots in the house.

Adding New Ducts

Issues with airflow might be the root cause of the cold spots. If the home doesn’t receive enough airflow, maybe a new duct and accompanying vent could help the cause. Adding a new duct and vent might not be as involved as you may think.

Repairing Current Ducts

The ducts in a home might be out of sight, but this doesn’t mean they are “okay.” Damage to the ducts might happen for all kinds of reasons. Once the damage occurs, it could throw off airflow. Now, cold or hot spots develop in the home. Having someone check out and repair the ducts can help with this.

Switch the Air Filter

Air filters become quite dirty over time. The filter might even collect a significant amount of dirt earlier than expected. When this happens, the filter might not be able to deliver the intended results. Cold spots could develop. Changing the air filter might restore uniformity inside the home. Homeowners subscribing to routine service maintenance plans might not have to worry about filters going too long without changing.

Improper Air Conditioning Size

A wrong-sized air conditioner would be a significant problem. Homeowners may need to purchase and install a new one to correct problems like uneven cooling and heating.

Ductless Mini Splits Can Be Used for Home Zoning

If your home has trouble with hot or cold posts but you don’t necessarily want a full central HVAC system replacement, mini split installation can be a helpful solution for even climate control. Mini-splits are compact units that offer both heating and cooling without having to use ductwork, which make them a perfect supplemental heating and cooling option for a garage, guest house, family room, or other detached space in the home.
