What’s Causing These Hot Spots?

question-markLiving in Georgia means you need your air conditioner to function at peak performance levels. It is just too hot around here to settle for anything less than the best from your home cooling system. Just because your system is up and running doesn’t mean that it is running properly, however. One common issue that homeowners encounter is hot spots.

Hot spots in your home are a serious problem, but they are not necessarily indicative of problems with your home’s air conditioner itself. There are a lot of potential causes of warm spots in a home, which is why having the situation evaluated by a trained professional is so important. When you schedule service with us, we’ll get to the bottom of any issue with your AC in Rome, GA.

It May Be Your Insulation

If you only associate insulation with the winter season, you need to reevaluate the way you think about this material. Yes, insulation plays a vital role in keeping heat indoors during the winter season. However, it is also vitally important that your insulation keeps heat outside of the house during the summer season. Otherwise, your AC is going to be overworked, and you may wind up with hot spots in your home.

Maybe your insulation was never sufficient. Perhaps your insulation has been compromised by water damage or pests. Whatever the case, you’ll need to have a professional add to or replace your insulation if you hope to cool your home evenly and effectively.

Perhaps Your System Is too Small

Hopefully, this is not the case, as there is no way to “repair” an undersized system. In fact, it may be working perfectly—just not for a home of this size. If your air conditioner is too small for the space that it is installed in, then it will struggle to effectively cool the house. Chances are that those areas furthest from the unit will suffer the most.

Now, if you’ve never had issues with uneven cooling before, then size probably is not the issue. It’s not like your AC has shrunk. If it has always been a problem, though, then you may want to have the system assessed and, if necessary, replaced with a more appropriately sized one.

Your Air Ducts May Be Compromised

We’re guessing that you don’t give your air ducts all that much thought on a regular basis. After all, they are hidden from view behind walls and above ceilings. That’s precisely the problem sometimes, though. You may not realize that there’s anything wrong with your system, even as leaky air ducts are costing you in both comfort and dollars!

If your hot spots are localized, there’s a good chance that the ducts servicing those areas are leaking. If this is the case, you’ll need professional duct sealing services in order to resolve the problem. You’ll find them when you schedule service with our team.
