Does it feel like the air conditioner in your Roseville, CA, home isn’t circulating air properly? Several problems can cause poor airflow. Once you identify the problem, repair it right away so that you can enjoy efficient air conditioning again.
Your home’s air conditioning system has a built-in air filter that removes particle pollutants from your indoor air supply. When this filter removes enough debris, it’ll clog. As a result, your AC system will have to work much harder to push air through it. It’s a good idea to replace your air conditioner filter every month during the summertime to ensure your system has the best airflow possible.
Debris On or Around the Condenser Unit
Your air conditioning system’s condenser unit sits outside, and it’s not uncommon for a build-up of debris to collect on and around it from time to time. It’s vital that you clear any loose debris in the space surrounding the condenser unit. This way, air can flow freely through the outdoor unit to disperse the heat from the inside of your home. Ideally, you should have at least two feet of clearance around your air conditioner’s outdoor unit.
Blocked Supply Vents
Each room throughout your home has vents that are responsible for circulating air throughout the room. When the vents get blocked by objects like pieces of furniture or plants, they can reduce their airflow. It’s advisable to evaluate the vents throughout your home to see if there is an airflow obstruction. Also, take this time to vacuum any dust on the supply vents and wipe them clean. By doing so, you’ll help to promote better airflow and indoor air quality.
