Prompt air conditioner and home furnace repair is necessary to maintain the desired comfort level in your home at all times. However, sometimes poor HVAC performance isn’t necessarily caused by problems with your system. In many cases, it’s actually the result of poor air circulation inside your home. Your heating and cooling system relies on its ability to regulate airflow to properly and adequately control the temperature in your home.
Airflow problems are caused by a number of factors. The most common culprits can often be addressed with various tips and tricks, but major issues require the attention of a professional HVAC technician. Here are a few tips from our experts at Cooper Bros on how to handle airflow problems in your home.
Dealing with obstructions. Uneven temperatures in different areas of your home may be caused by obstructed vents. Before you call for an AC or furnace replacement, check the vents and registers to make sure that they’re not blocked by anything. Avoid placing large pieces of furniture at your main ventilation exit points to allow air to circulate freely. Keep your registers free of dust and debris at all times.
Old filters. Over time, air filters in your air conditioner or heating system can get bogged down by dust. This is normal. After all, filters are there to catch dust and particles and prevent them from being blown throughout your house. Make sure you change or clean your filter at least once every 30 days to improve the flow of air inside your ducts and vents.
Regular maintenance. Contact your local AC repair technicians to conduct regular tune-ups and inspections of your heating and cooling units. Our experts recommend a full preventive maintenance visit at least once a year, but you can do it as often as once every season as needed.
