Here in Texas, it may feel like summer as early as April, or even March, but summer isn’t really starting until now. Now that we’ve hit June, you know those hot temperatures are here to stay. And as you’re blasting your A/C you’ll want to make sure you’ve got what it takes to maximize airflow. This will help keep you cool and comfortable, without raising your electric bill through the roof! In this post, we’ll look at a few ways you can maximize airflow!
CHECK YOUR FLOW
If your HVAC unit was working at maximum efficiency, every corner of your home would be at a comfortable temperature. You should be just as cool in the farthest corner in the house as you are standing right underneath the vent. If the cool air isn’t being distributed evenly, you could have an airflow problem.
As we’ve discussed in our other posts regarding heaters and air conditioning units, having clean and undamaged air ducts should solve most of your airflow issues. If the rooms that are farther away from your HVAC unit aren’t getting enough cool air, blockages (or leaks) could be the problem.
TAKE A LOOK
Go to a back bedroom, and remove the register from your vent. You’ll be able to see inside – and it may not be pretty. If you have a vacuum with a hose attachment, reach in as far as you can to clean out as much dust as possible. After that, wipe it down with a wet cloth, again reaching as far inside as you can. You can also wipe down the louvers on the register, and make sure they are fully open for maximum airflow.
