Is Your AC Air Flow Blocked?

Summer in Florida is not the time for your air conditioning to stop working. If you notice that you can’t feel the air circulating when your fan is on you may have identified an air flow blockage. There are a lot of reasons this happens; some of them require professional repair. The professionals at Reynolds Air & Heat can help you figure out what the problem is, repair any issues, and get you back to a comfortable environment quickly.

Reasons Why Your Airflow May Be Struggling

Clogged Air Filter: An air conditioner operates by cooling the air it “breathes in” via the return air vents. But, when there is a dirty filter, that limits the air coming in to be cooled. It is important to regularly check and change your filter to keep the air coming in and out efficiently.

Blocked or Leaky Air Ducts: The air duct is the “transportation system” that takes the cool air throughout your home. Because it operates as a continuous system, when there is a leaky duct or blockages, it limits the amount of air that can be delivered to your living space. Reynolds Air & Heat professionals will inspect your ductwork issues, seal leaks, and clear any blockages.

AC Blower Malfunction: This is a common problem associated with loss of airflow from your air conditioner. The blower fan is the mechanism that pushes the cold air through your air ducts and into your home. Dirty blades and a blower motor that has gone bad are just two reasons you may have blower issues.

Evaporator Coil Freezing: The air that cools your home passes over cold evaporator coils in your air conditioner. Sometimes, these coils can freeze, blocking the air from passing over the coils. While you may still have some cold air conditioning, in this case, you may notice that it is much weaker than it was before. Frozen evaporator coils can be caused by a refrigerant leak, dirty coils, clogged filters, or even blocked return vents.
