Owning property, whether it be your home or your very own commercial building is a dream that can help you build equity! But owning a property comes with its fair share of responsibilities when it comes to maintenance and upkeep such as the added costs of inefficient heating and cooling systems that are caused by poor airflow in your vents. At Nevada Pure Air, we often find that property owners who have inefficient heating and cooling systems that increase your energy bill while placing unnecessary stress on your HVAC unit. But how do you increase airflow in air vents and increase your unit’s efficiency?
Clean the air filter
One of the leading causes of poor airflow in your home has to do with a clogged air filter. Air filters catch dust, allergens, and other particles in the air that you shouldn’t be breathing in, but if they are left uncleaned for a long period of time or home is particularly dusty and dirty, they can clog.
You may need to clean your air filters if you notice that your energy bill has increased significantly over a period of time. Clogged and dirty air filters can make your heating and cooling unit work harder to condition a room’s temperature and this can put a strain on the unit and increase the amount of energy needed.
It’s recommended that you clean or replaces the air filters in your home every 90 days but excessively dusty homes may need cleaning more often.
Inspect for leaking ducts
Another reason that you may be noticing poor airflow from your air ducts is that there may be a leak in your ducts. In order for air ducts to be efficient and effective, they need to be properly sealed when installed. Leaking air ducts can let air escape before making it to the air vents. Again, this, in turn, will raise your energy bill while leaving your home feeling either too cold or not warm enough. You will want to make sure that your air ducts are properly fitted and sealed. Having a specialist inspect your air ducts once or twice a year is ideal to ensure optimal airflow.
Clean your hair ducts and air vents
Along with dirty air filters and leaking vents, dirty air ducts can cause your heating and cooling system to become inefficient. Dusty air ducts can clog and cover your air filters while lowering the quality of the air that you breathe by introducing more dust, dander, and allergens into the air that you breathe.
