Proper airflow in your house enhances your indoor air quality, maintains a comfortable temperature and keeps particles from accumulating in your ductwork. Learn how to increase the airflow in your El Paso, TX, home so that you can start breathing cleaner air as soon as possible.

Eliminate Obstacles

The position of your furnishings and the architecture of your home both impact your air circulation. To make sure you aren’t making your airflow worse, keep furniture away from vents and consider the flow of air when choosing the location of items in your home.

Replace Your Filters

The filter in your HVAC unit captures and eliminates contaminants from your indoor air. Your HVAC filter might become clogged, preventing air circulation through the system. This will not only restrict airflow but also cause additional wear as your system works harder to push air through the ducts.

Improve Attic Flow

If your home does not have an exhaust fan in the kitchen and bathrooms, you should consider installing them. When your attic doesn’t have sufficient ventilation, stagnant and humid air will build up and eventually infiltrate the rest of your home. This can have an impact on the temperature of your entire house.

Clean Your Ductwork

Debris, dirt and other particles will accumulate in the ducting of your HVAC system while it operates. This accumulation restricts airflow, resulting in reduced conditioned air in your space and the overworking your HVAC system. If you observe increased dust in your house or a decrease in airflow, unclean ducts might be the source of the problem.
