Why Are There Hot Spots in My House?
Here in Las Vegas, it should really go without saying that we need to have great air conditioners installed in our homes. The weather around here is way too hot for way too much of the year to take any chances with the overall quality of our home cooling systems. That is exactly why it is so frustrating and so alarming to discover that there are problems of any kind with our air conditioners in Las Vegas, NV.
One issue that you may notice when cooling your home is that hot spots are popping up throughout your living space. Do not convince yourself that this is a normal situation. The whole point of using a whole-house air conditioner is to cool your whole house effectively and evenly, after all. Schedule your AC repairs with us so that you can get back to living in the level of comfort that you deserve. We can diagnose the problem successfully, which is important considering it may not be directly AC related!
One major contender for the cause of hot spots in your home is subpar insulation in the affected areas. Insulation must be of the right R-value to successfully insulate your home. It cannot be deteriorated due to moisture exposure from leaks, and if it is chewed up by varmints then you are going to have trouble.
Let us know if your home has hot spots when you are trying to cool it, and we’ll figure out if it is the result of too little or too damaged insulation. If so, we can replace that insulation as needed. It may just be that more insulation is needed, too. Whatever the case, we’ll handle the job right.
If your system is leaking refrigerant, then it is not going to be able to sufficiently cool the air that it must distribute throughout your home. That could lead to lukewarm air being distributed, and those areas farthest from the air handler may suffer the most. Refrigerant is not consumed by an air conditioner, but is recycled over and over, so low le.vels likely mean leaks.
Only a professional technician can seal these leaks and recharge the refrigerant in your system. We’ll make sure that a lasting solution is provided. We are not in the business of supplying bandages for the symptoms of underlying problems.
Damaged Air Ducts
Assuming that you use a ducted forced air air conditioning system, the culprit in this situation could be your air ducts themselves. If the ductwork servicing a particular area of the house is damaged, then it can lead conditioned air out. If it is located in an unconditioned area, it can also pull hot air into the system.
Don’t even think of going around and looking for leaks on your own. This is no job a DIY enthusiast armed with a roll of duct tape. We can thoroughly test and expertly seal your air ducts for you.
