Proper airflow is essential to maintaining the comfort of your Jensen Beach, FL, home. So, if your home has airflow problems, solving them fast is important. Consider these four common airflow issues as you search for the culprit:
Clogged Air Filter
As your HVAC system works to circulate air around your home, it relies on an air filter to keep it clean. When that filter gets clogged with dust, dirt and other debris, it’ll impede your HVAC system’s ability to circulate air. Replacing your air filter with a new one might solve your home’s poor airflow problem and improve your air quality.
Blocked or Closed Air Registers
The air registers you’ll find around your home are how your HVAC system returns conditioned air to where you need it. If you’ve closed any of them or blocked them with furniture, the HVAC system can’t do its job properly. So, if your home has poor airflow, check to make certain all its air registers remain open and unimpeded.
Damaged or Leaky Ducts
Central HVAC systems rely on a network of ducts inside a home’s walls to carry air around the home. If those ducts leak air or suffer damage that partially blocks them, poor airflow is a likely result. If you notice poor airflow coming from only one or a few registers, your home’s ductwork might need repair.
Improperly Sized Ductwork or Registers
Sometimes, a home’s poor airflow stems from decisions made at the time of its HVAC system’s installation. If the system’s ductwork or its registers aren’t the right sizes, it could prevent the system from circulating air properly. To fix that you’d need an expert HVAC service technician to diagnose the problem and design a solution.
