If the air flow is reduced air conditioner reduces its energy efficiency and results in various problems. These problems include dirty air filters, dirty coils, improper ventilation of ducts, etc.

 To ensure maximum air flow following steps should be taken

1. Cleaning and Repairing air ducts


Ducts are the sources through which air reaches the house. If ducts are leaky they will result in recued air flow. Sealing the joints of the air ducts and repairing the leaks with the sealant will bring a noticeable change in the increasing air flow inside the system.

Inside the air conditioner there is blower motor which circulates the air. Over the time dirt and dust gets collected inside the motor. By cleaning the fan blower on motor on annual basis you can increase the air flow.

6. Charging the refrigerant

Refrigerant acts as the medium to transfer heat inside the system. If the refrigerant is low the heat will not transfer properly and result in reduced air flow. By charging the refrigerant and fixing the leak maximum air flow can be ensured.
