Uneven Heating in Reading, PA

Dealing with hot and cold spots in your house is always frustrating. Sometimes
this problem can be fixed easily, but it could also be more difficult to fix.
Reaching out to an HVAC company in your area is always a good idea in helping
you solve this problem to ensure that you and your family stay comfortable in
your home.

Here are a few of the most common reasons for hot and cold spots in a home.

Dirty Air Filter

Not regularly replacing your air filter is a common mistake by many people. A
dirty air filter can lead to hot and cold spots in your home due to it limiting the
efficiency of your system. It will also put more strain on your system, which
reduces its lifespan. You will need to change your air filter every two to three
months to avoid this problem. A clean filter can help you save money on your
utility bill.

Too Much Sunlight

Some areas inside of your home may receive more sunlight than others, and this
can cause a room to be hotter than normal. You can solve this issue in a variety
of ways, whether it’s putting up blinds or shades, tinting your windows, or even
planting a tree on the side of your house for additional shade. Running a ceiling
fan in the room can also make it feel cooler.

Wrong Size of HVAC Equipment

Make sure your HVAC equipment is the right size for your home to keep your
home at a comfortable temperature. An oversized system will run enough to meet temperature,
but not enough to dehumidify, and an undersized system will struggle to heat or cool your home. Contacting
Comfort Pro to inspect your home is important as they can recommend the best
size of equipment for your home’s square footage.
