The cold air that your air conditioner produces in the hot Boynton Beach, FL, summer helps you beat the heat. When your AC system is working great, you likely don’t think much about it. However, when you notice that you’re getting poor airflow, there are some common culprits that you can check.
Dirty Air Filter
One of the most common culprits of poor air conditioner airflow is a dirty air filter. During the summer season, it’s likely that your air conditioner filter needs replacing at least once a month. When it becomes too dirty, it’ll make it much harder for your AC system to push air through it.
Blocked Air Vents
The air vents throughout your home are responsible for delivering cooled air to each room. When they become blocked, it’s difficult for your rooms to get the cooled air delivered as they should. Take a few minutes and check all your home’s air vents to ensure a free flow of air around them.
Your ductwork is like a highway for delivering cooled air from your air conditioning system to the various rooms throughout your home. If there are too many leaks in your ductwork, the cooled air will escape through the holes.
Blocked Condenser Vents
Your outdoor condenser unit has a series of vents that allows fresh air to flow over the condenser coils. It’s not uncommon for loose debris like twigs and leaves to get blown up against the condenser vents and reduce its airflow. Simply head outside and remove the loose debris around the condenser unit to enhance the airflow that it receives.
