Weak Airflow? What Are Your Options?

One of the most inconvenient things that can happen to your home during the winter or summer monthsis not getting enough heated/cooled air. Its important to make sure that your HVAC system is ready for the daily grind of regulating your indoor climate.

Regardless of the season, you can’t afford to have a heating or cooling system that blows air weakly. If it does, these are the usual suspects:

The Thermostat Setting Is Incorrect

We know its sounds obvious, but the first thing to check is to make sure your thermostat is set to heat in the winter and cool in summer and the fan is on “AUTO”. If it isn’t, you’re really not going to get any heat or ac from the registers.

If it doesn’t work or you do not see any display, install fresh batteries, as well as check fuses and circuit breakers, to rule out power issues. If all else fails, either adjusting or replacing is the next logical step.

You Have A Dirty Filter

If your thermostat is fine, you might have a dirty filter. Dirt build-up can limit the airflow, causing your heating equipment to under perform. If you have a reusable filter, clean it before trying again. Otherwise, change the filter if you haven’t done so in a while. Changing your filters regularly should be a task that is done regulatory.

Leakey Air Ducts

Holes in the duct-work are usually always a cause for concern. The air will not be able to reach the destination due to a portion of it escaping through the gaps. When this happens, your hvac system has to make up for the loss, which shortens the lifespan of your system and costs you more money overall.
