If you notice that the air conditioner inside your Gloucester, VA, home doesn’t seem to be delivering cold air like it used to, there could be a problem with its airflow. There are several culprits that could be causing an airflow issue throughout your system. Read on to learn about the most common issues causing airflow problems in your home.
1. Obstructed Condenser Unit
Your home’s air conditioning system has a condenser unit that sits outside. Because it’s exposed to the elements, it’s common for leaves and other outside debris to accumulate around the unit and block airflow through it. To remedy this issue, you simply need to remove the debris around the unit to allow it to have adequate airflow.
2. Blocked Vents
Each room in your Gloucester, VA, home has a supply and return vent that helps circulate the air throughout your home. If those vents don’t have unrestricted airflow around them, they may be unable to do their job to help circulate the air. Remove any objects that are blocking your vents, such as furniture or even a plant.
3. Clogged Filter
One common reason for poor airflow in an air conditioning system that you may deal with from time to time is a clogged air filter. You should replace your system’s air filter about once a month. Fortunately, this is a straightforward fix. You’ll just need to take out the old filter and replace it with a new one.
