If your air feels stuffy, it’s likely making you feel uncomfortable and sluggish. Is the air quality in your home or office poor? Here are some helpful tips on improving air flow.
Tip #1: Ensure the outdoor HVAC unit is clean.
Spring in the Northwest is a mixed bag of weather. It can be very hot, or it can be rainy and wet. The mix of weather, in tandem with the winter months of wind and rain can leave your outdoor HVAC system with plenty of dirt and debris. To help ensure that the unit is flowing air properly, clear buildup that may have gathered on the outside area of your HVAC system. Twigs, dirt, leaves, and other debris should be away from the unit always.
Tip #2: Avoid blockages.
Are all the vents inside your space clear and able to allow for air to flow through them? Keeping air registers or vents blocked or closed can change the way your air flows through your system and over time, this could cause problems. Be sure to open air registers throughout your home or office space and move any furniture that may be blocking them.
Tip #3: Stay on top of furnace filter cleaning and replacing.
Did you know that you should clean and/or replace your furnace filters once every 1 to 2 months? Keeping on top of regular filter cleaning or replacing is key to making your HVAC system last longer. In addition, it ensures that your air stays clean as it is being circulated into your home. Dirty air filters yield dirty, stuffy air.
