Why Does My AC Have Poor Airflow?

Your air conditioner is giving you a little trouble. One of the most common complaints we hear during this time of year is the problem of poor airflow. We know that this is a top-ranking issue. After all, what’s the use of your air conditioner without proper airflow?

If you’re trying to figure out why this is happening, then you’ve found the right blog. We’re going to walk through the problems that you might be experiencing and get to the bottom of the issues. Your AC repair in Murfreesboro, TN is something that we specialize in. We’re prepared to help you find exactly what you need.

What’s Going On?

Here are a couple reasons why you might have poor airflow:

Blocked or Closed Vents

Do you have obstructed vents in your home? It’s easy to fall into the trap of moving your furniture in front of one of your vents. All your vents are vital. Don’t think that you can block off a vent or two and still get efficient service. It’s going to cause poor airflow and raise your energy bills in the process.

Dirty Ducts

Your ducts can accrue dirt throughout the year. Your home’s air probably isn’t spotless and since all the air has to pass through your ducts, some of the dirt has to settle there. It’s important to clean this out from time to time.

Leaky Ducts

Your ducts can leak and gap. This typically happens after years of your ductwork being in your home. It’s important to have our professionals check for gaps, holes, and other leaks. We’ll find any of your weak points and fix them as fast as possible for you.

A Lack of Insulation

You can have the best air conditioning system in the world that perfectly fitted for your home, but it’s not going to do you well if you don’t have the right insulation. Poor insulation causes air loss—your conditioned air in particular. If you want better service, then it’s important to have the right insulation.

Low Refrigerant

This is one of the most common reasons that you experience low airflow in a home. Your air conditioner should never run out of refrigerant. If it’s low on refrigerant, then what you actually have is a leak. You need urgent air conditioning repair. This will fix your poor airflow issue once and for all.

What To Do

We want to start off this “what to do” section with a little curveball—what not to do. We want you to back away from the duct tape. It’s not going to help here. If you think that the culprit behind your home’s low airflow is ductwork, then we’re glad you’re on the right path, but you’re heading toward a false “solution.” Duct tape can’t handle the fluctuations in temperature. Putting duct tape on your ducts is like adding a band-aid to a broken arm—it’s not addressing the root of the issue.
