Common Sources of Low Air Flow in AC Units
- Blockage and build ups. Dirt and dust can build up on your air filter, as well as clogging tight lines and even wider spots like your ducts. The net result – besides spreading dust and dirt throughout your home – is to lower the overall flow of air, forcing your air conditioner to work harder to do its job and increasing the risk of future repairs.
- Fan motor problems. Faulty electrical wiring or an internal problem with the fan motor will cause it to turn more slowly, lowering the flow of the air. In the case of a damaged wire, the problem is easy for a professional to correct, but a burnt-out motor is a serious repair that may necessitate replacing the whole air conditioner.
- Bent or misaligned fan blades. Fan blades can become misaligned through damage, or individual blades may become bent. The fan may also run into trouble if a foreign objects like a twig or loose screw gets jammed into its mechanism.
