Poor airflow in your New Albany, IN home can lead to an uncomfortable living environment. Uneven airflow can result from various reasons, and you need to address the issue quickly to restore comfort to your home. The following are some common causes of poor air distribution in homes.
Clogged Air Filters
Air filters prevent small particles from entering your ducts and circulatory system. When air filters clog with dust, dirt, and debris, they restrict airflow, resulting in uneven air distribution. To maintain proper airflow, inspect your air filters every 30 to 60 days and replace them when necessary.
Ducts not properly sealed can let air escape and leak into other home areas. This reduces air pressure in some areas, resulting in inadequate airflow. Have a professional inspect your duct system for any leaks or damage.
Old HVAC System
If your AC system is over 15 years old, it can become inefficient due to wear and tear. An older unit may need more air pressure for adequate airflow. Consider checking the age of your system and replacing it with a newer, more efficient model that can improve indoor air quality.
Improperly Designed Duct System
If you are building a new home or remodeling your existing one, have an experienced HVAC specialist design an efficient duct system. Poorly designed systems can cause air pressure imbalances that lead to uneven air distribution. Uneven airflow can make maintaining comfortable temperatures in your home difficult.
