Furnace & Air Conditioning Airflow Problems: Top 8 Causes in Toronto

Symptoms of poor airflow in an HVAC system include hot and cold spots in different parts of your home or commercial premises, pressure imbalance (strange noises and doors that slam by themselves are obvious signs of such an imbalance), warm air coming out of your air conditioning system or very little air coming out at all. Whether you have noticed some or all of these symptoms in your property, the best thing to do is to call your Toronto HVAC company to come and have a look at the problem.

What Is Stopping the Air from Flowing Freely?

One or more of the issues we have listed below could be at the root of your problem. If you cannot identify the cause on your own, we are ready and waiting to assist.

  1. Obstructed or Blocked Condenser Unit fan – Outdoor condenser unit obstructions, such as falling leaves, debris, and adjacent garbage, can obstruct airflow and lower the performance of your Airconditioning system. Inspecting and cleaning trash around the outside unit regularly, as well as keeping indoor condenser regions clear of obstructions, provides appropriate airflow for optimal performance during hot Toronto summers.
  2. Vents or Registers That Are Blocked By Furniture – This is especially common in commercial premises such as offices where people who do not like to be too hot or too cold decide to place filing cabinets or other items of furniture in front of heating & air conditioning registers and vents.
  3. Dirty Filters – Over time, the filters in furnaces and air conditioning systems can become clogged with collected particles, resulting in decreased efficiency. It is critical to clean or change these filters regularly to ensure peak performance. Before the start of summer, it is strongly suggested that you plan periodic tune-ups and servicing for your air conditioners. It is also advisable to undertake routine maintenance and tune-ups on the furnace in your Toronto residence.
  4. Slow Fan Motor – The blower fans that move air through your heating & air conditioning system can malfunction and either slow down or stop completely, resulting in poor air flow that reduces the efficiency of the system as a whole.
  5. Air Conditioning Unit That Is Too Large – While some people believe that bigger is better in all areas of life, this is certainly not always true when it comes to AC units. If you install an AC unit that is much larger than is needed in your property, it may cycle on and off so often that the end result is poor airflow in all rooms.
  6. Obsolete Design and/or Components – If it has been many years since you have had your heating & air conditioning system updated, your airflow problems may well be down to an outdated design or to components that are so inefficient they are obsolete by modern standards.
  7. Leaking Refrigerant – Low levels of refrigerant can result in poor airflow as well as cooling problems. Inadequate refrigerant levels can cause insufficient airflow and cooling concerns in your Toronto house. A professional HVAC provider should be contacted to assess and replenish the refrigerant. It is also critical to inspect your system for refrigerant leaks and have it repaired by skilled air conditioning professionals.
  8. Dirty Condenser Coils – If the coils in your condenser are not cleaned, the unit may be overworked, which can result in airflow issues. for any questions regarding HVAC contractors read this article.
