Cold spots in your Prospect, Kentucky, home can make your home uncomfortable and increase your energy bills. To reduce the number of cold spots in your home, you must first understand what causes them. Here are the following sources of cold spots and what you can do to make your home more comfortable.
Improperly Installed Duct System
An improperly installed duct system can be the source of cold spots in your home. If you live in an old house, the ductwork may not conform with the improved methods technicians use to achieve optimal HVAC performance. Sometimes, the house may not be old but the duct system may be installed poorly. This can make parts of your home too hot or cold. If you have this problem, call a professional HVAC technician to check your heating system.
Incompatible HVAC Equipment
You may have cold spots in your home because the wrong HVAC equipment was installed in your home. If you have an undersized unit, the system will struggle to heat and cool your living space, and it will underperform, thus increasing your energy costs. Using an oversized heating and cooling unit may cause parts of your home to be hotter or cooler than normal. Contact a qualified HVAC technician to evaluate your heating and cooling needs and recommend the ideal equipment size for your home.
Poor or Non-Existent Home Zoning
Improper zoning of your home can make some parts too hot or cold. Zoning is a system that allows you to set specific temperatures for different areas in your home instead of using the same setting for the whole house. This reduces heating and cooling costs, boosts indoor comfort, and reduces fights over the thermostat. An excellent way to solve this problem is to install a smart thermostat that can use sensors to deliver the ideal temperature to different parts of the house.
