The HVAC system cools and heats your home, ensuring that the rooms attain the set temperature. Your HVAC system needs to have balanced airflow to increase its efficiency and performance in general. Here are three reasons for your home’s poor airflow and some ways to improve it in Sevierville, TN.
1. Lack of Regular HVAC Maintenance
The HVAC system is complex, and for proper functioning, it needs regular maintenance. Weakened airflow can result from problems that have developed in the HVAC system. During a maintenance visit, our technicians will identify the problems and correct them to enhance efficiency.
2. Not Checking the Air Filters
Air filters clean the air, trapping specks of dust, allergens and debris as the air travels through the ducts. When you fail to clean or change your air filters regularly, they clog, making it impossible to clean the air.
You need to check your filters monthly and change them every three months or at whatever interval the manufacturer recommends. When the air that contains dirt and debris gets into the ducts, the contaminants obstruct them and make it hard for air to circulate freely.
3. Not Checking the Ductwork and Vents
One way of improving airflow is by checking that air vents in every room are open and ensuring that ductwork doesn’t have leaks or separations at joints. When the ductwork has leaks or vents are blocked, air will escape and lower the pressure inside them.
Low pressure will make the air slow down. To improve the airflow, you will need a technician to fix any leaks. You will also need to make sure that your ducts and air filters are clean.
Getting the correct size of your HVAC system will also improve the airflow and make the system more efficient. For HVAC installation, repair and maintenance in Sevierville, TN, contact our team at LB Chase Mechanical.
