Why Are There Cold Spots in My Home?

When you run your heating system this winter season, you should be able to heat your entire home evenly and effectively. If you are running into cold spots in your living space, action must be taken. You deserve a better heating experience than this.

There are a few potential causes of uneven heating in Hanford, CA. Some are more problematic than others, and there may not be a quick fix to the problem. Whatever the case may be, though, you can count on our heating technicians to do what it takes to get your heating experience back on track.

  • Leaky ductwork is a common cause of cold spots in many homes. If you use a forced air heater, like a furnace or a heat pump, then you depend upon your ductwork to distribute heated air throughout your home. If that ductwork is damaged and leaking, then there is no way in which you can hope for it to do so in the most effective way possible. Having your ducts tested will tell you for sure if this is the problem. if so, we can seal your ductwork to help eliminate these cold spots before your comfort is seriously compromised.
  • Poor insulation could also cause cold spots in your house. Your insulation prevents the heat that you pay for from slipping through the thermal envelope of your home. If you don’t have enough insulation in place, or if your insulation is not of the right R-value, then you may experience cold spots in the winter. This is likely the case if you have hot spots in the summer in these same areas.
  • Undersized equipment is another potential cause of cold spots. Unfortunately, there isn’t really a way to “repair” the system in this case, as there is really nothing wrong with it other than that it is underpowered for the task at hand. Of course, scheduling your heating installation with the professionals on our staff means you won’t have to worry about such problems.
