5 Reasons for AC Airflow Problems

July 20, 2019

Airflow issues are a common AC problem for residents in the Dallas/Fort Worth region. They are usually present if you notice pressure imbalances, uneven hot and cold spots in your home, or weak air output. Taking care of these issues in a timely manner is a good way to avoid compressor failure and help your home stay cool throughout the summer.

1. Debris on the Condenser Unit

The condenser unit of your AC system is exposed to the elements because it sits outside of the unit. You should check to make sure that there is not any yard debris blocking the condenser unit so that air can flow steadily.

2. Faulty Motor Fan

The motor fan in your AC unit needs to run at an even pace to keep it cooling consistently and evenly. Dust and debris can get lodged in the blades of the fan and make it work slower than normal.

3. Dust in Ductwork

Air must flow through your duct system to keep your entire house cool. If your ducts are small in relation to the size of your home, it is even more important that they stay totally clean for sufficient airflow. A professional may need to clean your ducts to keep them free of excessive dust and dirt.

4. Dirty Air Filters

Air filters must be changed periodically to allow enough air to flow around your home. It can be easy to put this task off and end up with dirty filters that cannot do their job.

5. Dirty Condenser Coils

The coils in the condenser unit help your AC unit get rid of the warm air. Given that the condenser is outside of the unit, it is easier for the coils to get dirty. If the heat cannot be expelled, then the entire AC unit must work harder to cool your entire home.
