Professionals who are servicing Carrier air conditioner and heating systems for efficiency will often focus on optimizing the airflow inside your home. Most HVAC systems rely on effective airflow planning to ensure good performance. Many homeowners take the flow of air inside their homes for granted, often resorting to leaving large open avenues in their floor layout for air to blow through and leaving it at that.
A good floor plan is essential to airflow, but there are also other equally important factors that must be considered. Effective airflow planning helps your HVAC system become more efficient in the long run. Here are a few tips from our experts at Amber Air on how to use proper airflow to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
What Happens When Airflow Is Poor?
Without proper airflow, temperature regulation in different areas of your home is thrown out of whack. Your air conditioning and heating system then has to run at a higher setting just to maintain your current comfort level. This causes your machine to consume more energy, resulting in higher utility bills. In some cases, it can even shorten the lifespan of your whole system overall.
Signs of Poor Airflow
The first thing most people notice when there’s inadequate or improper airflow planning is drafts. Cold or hot spots are also common because air is no longer circulated evenly throughout your home. Poor airflow can also cause imbalances in your air pressure, which could cause certain doors or windows to suddenly slam shut on their own.
