How to Increase Your Vent's Airflow

Picture this: You hear your HVAC system working away to pump treated air into your home, but when you walk by one of your supply vents, you're not feeling much air coming from it. This can obviously lead to some frustration since it implies your system is using energy for nothing. Not to worry though, there are plenty of ways you can increase the airflow so that your HVAC system functions properly.

Replace Your Air Filter

We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to change your air filter each month. while there are a number of reasons you should do so, in this case, a clean air filter will allow for better airflow into your HVAC system. Therefore, this will allow for more air to flow through your ductwork, giving it a much cleaner path to travel through your vents with ease."

Improperly-Sized Ductworks

If your ductwork is too small or too big for your home, air won’t be able to travel as easily to your vents. Ductwork that is on the smaller end of the spectrum Will prevent air from flowing properly, while ductwork that is too big will allow air to lose its way before it gets to your vents.

Leaks in Ductwork

Even if your ductwork is the right size, if it has any leaks or cracks, air can escape out of them before it has the chance to get to your vents. For this reason, it's important to have your ductwork inspected regularly so that leaks can be found and repaired in a timely manner.
