How to Increase Airflow in Your Home

Jun 24, 2022

No one likes a stagnant environment, especially during the warmer months. Without much airflow, even relatively cool climates can feel stifling. If you’re feeling a distinct lack of shifting air in your home, there could be a few reasons why: here’s how to remedy the matter and increase airflow in your home.

Turn on the Fans

One of the easiest ways to increase airflow in your home is to keep those ceiling fans running. Standing and portable fans are useful as well. If some rooms in the far reaches of your house are still receiving little to no cool air, consider investing in smaller A/C units to improve conditions in those areas. We can help you find the best option for your budget and household situation.

Keep Your Vents and Registers Open

Despite common beliefs, closing vents and registers in unused rooms to conserve energy is not a good idea when it comes to cooling your home. Doing so blocks proper airflow throughout the building and simply forces your HVAC system to work harder than necessary, sometimes resulting in overwear. While you’re checking your vents, it’s also a good plan to ensure the registers are clear of dust and debris that could be getting in the way of circulation.

Have Your Ducts Cleaned

We like to say that your ducts function as the respiratory system of your home. When they grow contaminated and congested, it’s time for a professional cleaning so they can “breathe” normally and efficiently again. This is especially important after a long winter and the following spring allergy season, when pollen, dust, dirt, animal dander, and other airborne particles are likely to be circulating. This improves the air quality in your home, helps cut down on allergy symptoms, and improves airflow in the process. Your HVAC unit won’t need to work so hard to force cool air past clogged ducts.

Schedule Preventative HVAC Maintenance

Just like any machine, your HVAC system will eventually need a tune-up. It’s a good idea to schedule these on a regular basis to get ahead of any problems. This way, you’re not caught in the middle of the hottest day of the year without a functioning A/C unit. Proper airflow in your home won’t mean much if your A/C system isn’t able to muster up enough efficiency to get cool air pumping!

"Will-Air spent the time to thoroughly check out both systems. We were pleased with the thoroughness of their preventative maintenance that we asked them to look at another problem we have had for years with the delivery of air throughout our home. They thoroughly explained a detailed quote to correct the problem. We were very pleased with their overall knowledge and communication and the details of their work, explanations, and written quotes."

Awesome. I called and they came out the same day to put a short term fix on my AC unit. They then installed a new unit a few days later. Quick and reasonably priced. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend them!
