How do I stop my vents from getting cold air?
Here’s what to do if you notice cold air coming from your vents:
- Install insulation. Poor insulation causes rapid cooling of the air as it moves through your home.
- Check connections. Over time, the connections in your ductwork can come loose.
- Update your HVAC.
