Common Causes & What You Can Do To Fix The Problem
When every part of your Coachella Valley home’s HVAC system is working exactly as it should, your house becomes an oasis of comfort. Every room is the same comfortable temperature, with no hot spots, cold spots or drafts. You are able to simply live and enjoy.
Unfortunately, not every home enjoys these even temperatures and draft-free rooms. If your home has rooms that are always a different temperature from the rest of the house, you don’t have to put up with it. Hyde’s can help you identify what’s causing these temperature fluctuations and resolve the issue so you can enjoy consistent comfort again.
Are Your Vents & Registers Blocked?
Sometimes uneven temperatures are created when you unwittingly block your vents or registers with furniture and decor items. This cuts off your home’s optimal airflow, leading to hot spots and cold spots. If you find that you have accidentally covered your vents and returns, simply rearrange your furniture. Not only will you have better airflow and more even temperatures, but your house will enjoy an updated look without you having to spend a dime.
Are Your Air Filters Dirty?
Even though changing your air filters is an easy task to complete, it’s also insanely easy to forget to do. Forgetting to change your filters on a regular schedule causes them to clog with dust, hair, pet dander and other particles that choke off your HVAC unit’s air intake and output. What you’re left with is diminished airflow and uneven temperatures. Make sure you change your filters at least once every 90 days to keep your home’s temperature comfortably even.
Is Your Ductwork In Good Shape?
If you’ve ensured your vents and registers are unobstructed and your air filters are clean, yet you’re still experiencing troublesome uneven temperatures, the problem may be with your ductwork. Thanks to our seismically active location, it’s easy for your ducts to become damaged without your realizing it. Damages like tears, cracks or kinks will cause your conditioned air to leak out within your walls rather than reaching your rooms. Have your ducts inspected to see if they need sealing and repair.
Is Your HVAC Unit The Wrong Size?
It’s an unfortunate fact that not all HVAC contractors operate with the honesty and integrity that you can expect from the professionals at Hyde’s. A dishonest contractor may have installed an improperly-sized system in your home in order to charge you more money. If your HVAC unit is the wrong size, it won’t be able to effectively cool and heat your home, leaving you with uneven temperatures, higher energy bills and probably some indoor air quality problems as well. If you’re worried that your home comfort system isn’t the right size for your needs, Hyde’s can evaluate your needs and make a recommendation for a proper HVAC installation.
