5 Causes of AC Airflow Problems

July 11, 2019

One of the main indicators of airflow problems is that there will be hot and cold spots throughout your home. If you let this issue go unresolved, your air compressor may end up getting damaged. That’s why it’s recommended that you have your AC unit inspected and repaired as soon as you notice any airflow issues or problems with your house getting cool.

1. Slow Motor Fan

If the fan in your AC unit is not moving properly, the air will not get cooled. Dirt, dust, and grime can accumulate in the motor or on the fan itself and cause it to stagnate. Cleaning these parts of the unit is fairly simple to do. However, if you need assistance from a professional cooling company, make sure to contact Southern Comfort Mechanical

2. Ductwork Issues

If the ductwork in your home is on the smaller side, any dust or debris that accumulates within it can make it even more difficult for the air to pass through unobstructed. The ductwork will need to be cleaned out or updated to meet your AC unit’s specifications for the size of your home. Southern Comfort Mechanical provides professional air duct cleaning services to residents who are experiencing problems with their ductwork.

3. Refrigerant Leaks

The refrigerant is necessary to help cool the air and can cause the unit to stop working if it leaks from the system. Sometimes it can take a skilled AC repair tech to identify and fix the refrigerant leaks in your AC unit.

4. Dirty Air Filters

It can be easy to forget to change out your air filters throughout the year. However, when you forget to do so, dust and debris can get clogged up and block the flow of air through them.

5. Inadequate AC Unit

If your AC unit is not the appropriate size, it may not cool your house all the way. This can be because your AC unit is too old or not large enough to accommodate any updates you have made to your home.
