Top Reasons You’re Having Airflow Issues

Do you have very little air coming through your vents and find it difficult to maintain the proper temperature in your home? Here are common causes and tips on how to solve poor indoor airflow.

Dirty Filter

If your air filter is noticeably dirty, you need to change it more often, it’s recommended every 1-3 months. A dirty air filter obstructs airflow throughout your HVAC system, causing less air to come through your vents.

Damaged Ducts

Ducts deliver air throughout your home. If there’s damage such as a leak or dents, they can’t do their job. Poor airflow is a top sign that you may need new or repaired ducts. Call your local HVAC company for an inspection.

Blocked Condenser Unit

Your outdoor condenser unit draws air in for cooling. If you have debris around the condenser, it can’t pull in air efficiently. Check to see if your condenser has the proper space.

You Need More Air Vents

If your home doesn’t have the proper amount of air ducts, it can’t provide steady airflow throughout your home. Call a professional to assess your home.

The Blower Motor Needs Care

The blower motor circulates air throughout your home. If it’s damaged or dirty, it can become slow, leaving you with less air than needed to maintain a comfortable temperature. Get bi-annual maintenance to prevent this problem.

Wrong Sized Unit

You need the correct sized unit to deliver the correct amount of air throughout your home. Too small of a system won’t be powerful enough, and too big of a system will cycle on and off. Call a professional for inspection.
