A/C Air Flow Restriction – What is it? Why is the amount of air so slow coming out of my a/c system?
What can cause an air flow restriction in your air-conditioning or heating system? The most common reason is a dirty or clogged air filter. The next most common reason is aging air duct work and or lack of knowledge. For example: air duct dampers are installed in the duct work system and the new home owner or business owner is not aware of them, flexible duct pipe has sagged and now has a kink in the run, there is another air filter in the system up in the attic (double filtering), the evaporator coil is older and has never been cleaned, etc.
Or it could be a unwanted object restricting the air flow in the duct work system that is causing poor air flow into the home or a particular room. See the attached picture – this is a good example of an older system that has experienced a problem with the glue that holds the insulation to the side of the sheet metal plenum, when the glue ages it will allow the insulation to come loose and then restrict the air flow. And ultimately your Cooling/Heating or A/C system works harder to keep you comfortable!
So if you have concerns about the amount of air flow in your home or business, call A.I.R. Plus today for an inspection.

The attached picture is of flex duct piping for a central heating and cooling system installed 25 years ago. As you can see the insulation that is to insure the heated or cooled air arrives efficiently to the room or rooms it is to heat or cool has lost it’s ability to do so! In most cases the plastic barrier that holds the insulation to the pipe and insures it does its job, is brittle and can not be reused. So replacing the duct work piping all together is typically the best option.
When you have your air conditioner serviced for the upcoming summer, please insure that part of the inspection and tune-up includes the duct work being inspected for performance issues. In this case the occupants knew there was an issue. The comfort level and performance of the cooling and heating was very poor in this particular room.
