Happy Family

It’s hot enough outside in Mobile, Alabama; you don’t want to worry about warm spots throughout your home as well. If you have the air conditioner running, but you still feel warm spots and have difficulty achieving even cooling, these three culprits may be to blame.

Air Conditioner Needs to Be Replaced

When you’re experiencing uneven cooling, replacing your air conditioner is the worst case scenario and the most costly fix. If your HVAC is the wrong size for your home, it can cause uneven cooling. Luckily, an experienced professional can tell you if the system is the right size for your home. If your system is aging, then sometimes you’ll experience uneven cooling. A new air conditioner is a big investment, but if it’s about time for a replacement or if your current system is the wrong size, you’ll save money by replacing it sooner rather than later.

Blocked Air Vents

If your air vents are blocked, you might feel uneven cooling or hot spots throughout your home during the warmer months. Sometimes people close off vents to try to focus cold air in specific rooms. Your HVAC systems won’t work effectively, and you may cause damage to your system and uneven cooling throughout the house. Make sure all your vents are open, and no vents are blocked by furniture or covered by carpet or wallpaper.

Lack of Insulation

Most people equate insulation with winter and keeping their house warm; however, insulation is just as necessary in the summer to keep the home cool. If your home is not properly insulated, you will not be able to control heat transfer, leading to hot spots in the summer and cold spots during the winter months. If you feel warm spots throughout your home, have a contractor check the insulation. It is an investment that will help keep your home comfortable and lower your utility bills throughout the year.
