How to Maximize Airflow in Your Home

Sometimes, it can seem like a struggle trying to maximize the airflow in your home. Whether you’ve exerted every option possible or you’re looking to cut back on air conditioning costs, there are quite a few ways to help make the process much easier. Without further ado, here’s how you can maximize airflow in your home:

Clean Air Vents

The last time you happened to pass an air vent in your home, did it look a little dingy or dusty? If so, that’s one of the reasons why the airflow in your home is lagging. Dust is a massive obstruction and will limit the amount of air that’s coming out of your unit. If you neglect dusty vents, not only will this make your unit work twice as hard to produce cold air, but it will also increase your energy bill.

One of the best ways to clean your air vents is to remove them (if possible) and wipe them down with a microfiber cloth. This will help break up any debris and provide the even distribution of airflow that you’re looking for.

Move Furniture Around

On average, how many objects in your home are blocking air vents? While you might not know off the top of your head (neither do we), it’s essential to conduct a walkthrough in your home and thoroughly examine if there is anything that is blocking your air vents. Not only is a blockage working against cooling your home, but it’s also another way your unit will work overtime to make your living space comfortable.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

When was the last time you had your HVAC system thoroughly inspected? Sometimes, there is an internal issue that will cause weak airflow — and you might not even know it, until a professional takes a closer look.
