Dealing with hot and cold spots in your Peachtree City, Georgia, home is a frustrating experience. Here are some of the most common causes of uneven heating and cooling.
Improperly Sized HVAC System
An improperly sized heating and cooling system could be one reason you have hot and cold spots in your home. When the furnace or air conditioner isn’t the right size for the layout and square footage of the home, it may not be able to keep up with the desired temperature you set on the thermostat. Other signs of an improperly sized HVAC system include frequent cycling on and off, constant running, or the frequent need for repairs.
When your unit has to run for longer periods of time, it’s inevitable that the components will wear out sooner and require repairs. If you notice any of these warning signs in your home, contact an HVAC technician to determine if your system’s size is the problem.
Problems with the ductwork, such as leaks, gaps, damage, or improper installation, can cause uneven heating and cooling. HVAC ducts are made of metal, so they can be damaged or separate over time or as the result of damage. If this happens, the air will escape through the gaps instead of being pushed through to the vents in each room. Additional signs of ductwork issues include hissing or rattling sounds, high energy bills, and weak airflow.
Adding on to the Home
Installing an addition to your home may make it difficult for your HVAC system to handle the additional load. Consider installing a ductless unit in this area to maintain a consistent temperature or replacing your current setup with a larger HVAC unit.
