Why Are There Hot and Cold Spots in My Home?

Hot and Cold Spots

Tired of walking from your living room to your upstairs bedroom only to feel like you’re entering a different climate? Hot and cold spots are an all too common occurrence, leaving us uncomfortable in our own homes. It’s time to gain back your comfort, and we have just the right solutions to make that happen.

In our 40 years of experience, we have learned that there are 3 culprits to the hot/cold spot dilemma.

  1. Your heating and cooling system is not the right size for your home.

When your heating and cooling system is too small for your home it could be working overtime to heat or cool your home. On the other hand, a unit that is too large could cause hot or cold spots as well, because one area of the home is being heated or cooled more than is needed. Whether your unit is too large or too small, not having the right size makes it hard to control a steady temperature and humidity level in your home, which directly results in hot and cold spots throughout your home.

  1. Your ductwork or house is not insulated well.

 Ductwork, usually being made of metal, can cool down or heat up air when it’s traveling to rooms that are far away from your heating or cooling unit. Some ducts are even exposed in attics and basements and aren’t well insulated. This cools down or heats up air temperatures even quicker.

Just as expected, if your home is not well-insulated, then some rooms will be warmer or cooler than others.

  1. Your home isn’t properly zoned.

Hot and cold spots in your home can be the result of improper zoning. With a ductless split heating and cooling system you can control the temperatures of individual rooms in your home rather than setting the temperature for your whole house. This not only increases comfort, but saves you money on your heating and cooling bills.
