Dealing with hot and cold spots in your Sarasota, Florida, home can be a frustrating experience. When you’re running the cooling system, the last thing you want to worry about is a warm bedroom or living space that never gets comfortable. Follow these tips to figure out how to manage your home comfort and eliminate hot and cold spots for good:
Install HVAC Zoning
In many homes, the HVAC systems are outdated or less efficient, leading to poor air distribution and ventilation. One option is HVAC zoning, which can create specific zones of the house that connect to their own individual thermostats. In larger homes, you could have several zones that will help you manage heating and cooling needs individually. Instead of having to cool and heat the entire space as the seasons change, you can maintain a more comfortable temperature for sleep in your bedroom while keeping the kitchen cooler.
Schedule Duct Cleaning
Dirty, clogged ducts can also limit airflow in your home. As a result, they can cause certain areas to feel warmer or cooler than others. A duct cleaning service can eliminate this problem while improving the efficiency of your HVAC system. Duct cleaning may also remove contaminants that are causing the indoor air quality to drop, so it’s a win-win solution. Poor indoor air quality can cause a number of problems for those who suffer from allergies and breathing conditions, including symptoms like congestion, eye irritation, sore throat and headaches.
If your heating and cooling system can’t operate efficiently, you may end up spending a lot in utility bills while still feeling uncomfortable in your own home. Setting your programmable thermostat correctly can improve the efficiency of your unit. It should cycle on and off less frequently to reduce energy waste. You should also have your system tuned up regularly to keep it working properly and ensure air flows efficiently.
