Here we will review some of the factors that can contribute to weak airflow coming from your AC:
If your air conditioner’s air filter is not changed regularly, it becomes blocked by the accumulation of dirt and debris. This excess build-up of contaminants can prevent your air conditioner from providing sufficient airflow as it cools the home.
Replacing your air filter is critical not only for preventing low airflow but also for maintaining healthy indoor air quality. A neglected air filter can also lead to other issues down the road if not addressed promptly.
The evaporator coil may also be the cause of weak airflow in your home. When functioning correctly, warm air passes over the coil to cool down before it’s circulated back into the house. If the evaporator coil freezes, the air is restricted from passing over the coils and going through the ductwork to cool the house. There are several causes for a frozen evaporator coil, including a blocked air filter, a build-up of dirt on the coils, and a refrigerant leak.
A significant leak or obstruction in your ductwork can also lead to a decrease in airflow. It is important to note that air ducts typically do not become blocked instantly. The process takes time, and if you experience a sudden drop in airflow from the air conditioner, blocked air ducts are probably not the cause of the problem.
Finally, an issue with the blower itself can cause a noticeable drop in airflow when using your air conditioner. The blower utilizes a system of fans to push air through the ductwork and into the home. If the blower is not working correctly, you’ll need a professional HVAC technician to evaluate and repair the unit.
