Good airflow is crucial to maintaining good indoor air quality. It’s also vital for improving the efficiency of your HVAC system. Proper airflow can improve your IAQ by removing stagnant air. It can also improve the efficiency of your HVAC system by preventing it from working harder than it should. Try these tips to improve the airflow in your Cartersville, Georgia, home:
Don’t Block Vents or Registers
Sometimes the design of your room may be the cause of inhibited airflow. Make sure that no furniture or decorations block the vents or registers in the room so the air can fill the room and get it to the proper temperature. As a result, you’ll help prevent inefficient operation.
Install an Attic Fan
If you don’t have an exhaust fan in your home, you should probably have one installed. When you don’t have proper ventilation in your attic, the stagnant air will stay trapped inside and eventually penetrate the floor. This can affect the temperature in the entire house.
Change Your HVAC Air Filter
The filter in your HVAC system traps pollutants and removes them from the air in your home. Your HVAC filter can become clogged and inhibit the airflow through your HVAC system. As a result, it can cause problems such as poor air output and component failure.
Keep Your Ductwork Clean
As your HVAC system runs, dirt, debris, and other pollutants will begin to settle along the ductwork in your system. This buildup reduces the flow of air that travels through the ductwork. As a result, it provides less conditioned air in the room and makes your HVAC system overwork. If you notice an increase in the dust in your home or a reduction in airflow, dirty ducts could be the problem.
Proper design, ventilation and maintenance are simple ways to improve the airflow in your home. Want to enjoy the benefits of improved airflow? Contact Pendley Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. at (770) 382-1221 today to schedule your duct cleaning service today.
