Learning About Commercial HVAC Systems

Hello, my name is Jacob. I would like to talk about proper installation and repair of the HVAC system in your commercial building. Full scale HVAC systems for commercial buildings require ongoing maintenance and repairs to keep every floor and room at a comfortable temperature. These temperature control systems also control the air quality in the building by sending the airflow through filter elements. My site will cover all aspects of the upkeep needed for these systems. I will also talk about the benefits of keeping your air quality and temperatures at desirable levels. Thanks for coming to visit my website.

Common Causes Of Low And Weak Airflow From Your Central Air Conditioner

Isaiah Chapman

You and your family depend on your home's central air conditioner to keep you consistently comfortable throughout the entire summer. However, have you begun noticing that the airflow from your central air conditioner is much weaker or non-existent in some spots throughout your home? Insufficient airflow from your central air conditioner is a common issue that can be easily diagnosed and repaired by a professional.

Here are a few of the most common causes of weak airflow from your central air conditioner.

A Refrigerant Leak

If the airflow is weak or the air is not as cool as it should be, the issue is often a refrigerant leak. The refrigerant should last the life of the central air conditioner. If there is an issue with the refrigerant, it is typically because there is damage to the refrigerant line. Check the line, which is found on your outdoor condenser, for signs of wear.

If there is damage to the line and if the refrigerant is leaking, contact a professional right away. An HVAC technician can repair the damage, replace the line, and refill the refrigerant.

Damaged, Obstructed, or Leaky Ducts

The ducts throughout your home carry the cool air from your central air conditioner. If there is any damage to the ducts, or if the ducts are obstructed, the cool air cannot effectively travel throughout the house. Head down to your basement and examine the ducts.

If you notice any damage to the ductwork, contact a professional for help. It is difficult to determine if an obstruction, such as dirt, debris, or dust, is the issue. An HVAC technician will use a specialized camera to examine the inside of the ducts to determine if there are any issues.

Clogged Air Filter

Often, if the airflow from your central air conditioner is negatively impacted, the culprit is a dirty air filter. The air filter is typically found near the thermostat or the air handler. Contact the manufacturer or an HVAC technician if you cannot find your system's filter. Examine the air filter and replace it immediately if it is very dirty or damaged.

The type of air filter you require depends on the system and the manufacturer. For example, some manufacturers recommend reusable air filters. These filters can be cleaned periodically to remove any excess dust, dirt, and debris.

From a clogged air filter to damage to an obstruction in the ductwork, there are several common reasons why the airflow from your central air conditioning system is not as strong.
