How to Increase Air Flow at Home in the Coachella Valley
If you want to make the best of natural air flow or do what you can to increase the power of your HVAC system, follow the tips compiled by our team.
- Bring in the fresh air. Open windows and doors when possible. Opening multiple airways on different ends of the house can help create a draft and allow air to move. Add to this effect using fans to circulate fresh air from one room to the next.
- Check and open all vents and registers. Despite what you may have been told, closing vents in rooms you are not using makes your system work harder. Check that your vents and registers are open and unblocked so air can move as designed. If several rooms in your home don’t need to be regularly cooled or heated, consider zoning systems to give you better control over your HVAC system. These HVAC systems allow for optimal temperature control and airflow without decreasing efficiency.
- Clean your ducts. Air filters trap dust, dirt, debris, and airborne particles, including dander and other allergens. Duct cleaning can help reduce contaminants, both those that are not caught by filters as well as those introduced into the system through holes, leaks, and disconnections. This contamination can accumulate over time, impeding airflow and decreasing system efficiency.
- Take advantage of ceiling fans. Utilize ceiling fans to improve airflow and help your AC do its job. In summer, circulate air counterclockwise for better-cooled air distribution and to create a wind chill effect.
- Install exhaust fans. Using exhaust fans, typically in the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms, pulls heat out of the home. They will also improve indoor ventilation and prevent excess humidity.
- Use an attic fan. Installation of an attic fan removes stagnant air and heat and will increase circulation in your home. Reducing attic temperatures greatly improves the functionality of your HVAC system as it works to cool the house.
