5 Woes of Unbalanced Airflow

You keep getting phone calls from every heating and cooling company in the game, and you’re feeling overwhelmed. One has cheap prices, but you've heard their quality isn’t that good. The others are really great quality, but their prices just don’t fit your budget. If you hire a national brand, you’ll have to call their busy hotline and wait for someone to help you - only to be scheduled 3 months from now.You don’t really need that kind of added stress, do you? Especially when all you were trying to do was have balanced airflow in the house.

Having an unbalanced HVAC unit can be frustrating. Just check out these 5 woes of having an unbalanced HVAC system inside your home and how to avoid them.

1) Energy Waste

If you have an unbalanced airflow, your HVAC system is working twice - if not five times - harder than it should be just to keep the room temperature the way you like it. So much energy is being wasted. The electricity bill is skyrocketing, which could easily be avoided. It’s not your fault though, so don’t feel guilty. Over time air conditioning units lose their efficiency, so it is crucial that you keep up to date with maintenance.


2) Temperature Imbalance

Having an unbalanced HVAC system can lead to having hot and cold spots throughout your house. This means that heating and cooling temperatures can be drastically different from room to room. It could get scorching hot with degrees reaching up to 80 and above, yet the room next door is freezing cold. That, my friend, is why you need to balance airflow throughout your home.


3) Debris & Contaminants

Debris in your HVAC system is collected throughout your home, and eventually, it builds up to the point to where it blocks whole airway passages. Having your air conditioning system covered with debris and contaminants is extremely unhealthy. You’re unconsciously breathing in contaminants that can lead to health issues down the road. To avoid this, it’s to clean your unit at least once a month.


4) Unbalanced Air Pressure

Are doors slamming out of nowhere? Maybe you hear strange whistling noises at night. Hold your horses - it might not be the paranormal at work. It could just mean that your HVAC unit has unbalanced air pressure throughout the house. This is why we recommend balancing your air conditioning pressure each month. It will save you from buying a whole new HVAC unit.


5) Fan Issues

It may be time to get a new fan. The fan inside might be getting rusty or even worse - broken. Your fan may also have obstacles stuck inside it, preventing it from reaching its full potential. This may be causing the inconsistent poor airflow throughout the registers.
