5 Causes of Poor Airflow and Its Impact on HVAC Efficiency

Did you know that poor airflow is one of the most common problems with HVAC systems? In Orange Park, FL, there are multiple causes of poor airflow that can significantly impact your comfort and energy bills. Here are five of the most common causes of poor airflow and what you can do about them:

Dirty Air Filters

When dirt and dust clog the filter, they restrict airflow, making it harder for your HVAC system to do its job. To fix this problem, let our professionals perform maintenance on your system and replace your air filters regularly.

Ductwork Issues

If there are any leaks, holes or blockages in your ductwork, it can cause poor airflow. Causes of these issues can be anything from animals nesting in your ducts to damaged insulation. It’s important to schedule duct cleaning by a skilled service technician if you suspect any problems.

Closing Air Vents

If any air vents close, it can restrict airflow to certain areas of your home and cause your HVAC system to work harder than necessary. Ensure all your air vents are open and clear of any obstructions.

Poorly Designed HVAC System

If your HVAC system isn’t properly designed for your home, it can cause airflow problems. This is usually a problem in older homes that have renovations without properly considering the HVAC system.

Thermostat Issues

When your thermostat isn’t working properly, it can also impact the airflow in your home. If you have an old thermostat, it may be time to upgrade to a newer model. Or, if you have a programmable thermostat, ensure its setting is accurate.

If you’re having any issues with the indoor air quality in your home, contact the experts at Cool Connections, Inc. We can help you troubleshoot the problem and find a solution that will keep you comfortable all year long.
