Hot and Cold Spots
Homeowner’s often question why hot andcold spots occur in their homes. These areas are rooms that are hot in the summerand cold during the winter. Uneven heating and cooling of a room may occur forseveral different reasons. Cypress Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified technicians candetermine the cause of your uncomfortable rooms, and provide a solution foreffective repair or installation of heating and air conditioning in Katy, TX. Common causes of hot and cold spotsinclude:
· Air duct issues are especially likely in a room that was previouslycomfortable year round. Damaged ducts and separation of duct joints can lead toconditioned air leaking into the basement, attic or the crawlspace. Inaddition, improperly sized or poorly installed air ducts can result in poordelivery of conditioned air throughout the home. The ducts are an essentialcomponent of system design and when improperly sized, reduce your comfort, theefficiency, performance, potentially the lifespan of the system.
· The ductwork isn’t the only component of your home’s HVAC system that requires propersizing. The heating and air conditioningsystem itself require proper sizing for the home. An undersized system islikely to run constantly in its efforts to maintain the set temperature, whilean oversized system will not run long enough, leaving the uncomfortablehumidity behind, and never reaching peak efficiency. In both situations, thesystem will experience premature wear, resulting in a reduced lifespan, andhigher energy bills.
· Inspect the affected room for air leaks from windows, any exteriordoors, and holes in the siding or foundation beneath it. Sealing air leaks willmake the room more comfortable.
· A tune up may increase the unit’s performance and take care of theproblem.
