How to Check Your AC Airflow

Your AC unit works hard during the summer to keep you cool. This means that there are more chances of it breaking down when you least expect it. Unfortunately, you do not want to go through the summer without some kind of functioning air conditioning unit. Colair, Inc. in Mission, TX, has some information for you about your AC airflow. Here are some simple things that you can do to check the airflow of your air conditioner.

Assessing the Situation

The first thing that you need to do to check your AC airflow is to assess the situation. Is there no air coming out at all? Is there only a little bit of cool air that is flowing, warm air, or no air at all? These questions will help you to determine what is happening behind the scenes. You will need to check your fan’s blower belt if there is no air coming through at all. This is a common occurrence and the belt simply needs to be replaced. However, there is always a multitude of potential problems that could be occurring with your AC unit to prevent it from blowing air.

Common Problems That Prevent Airflow

We often overlook simple issues that prevent our air conditioning units to pump out air. Fortunately, we have a list of common problems that can be preventing optimal airflow. These are some common issues that can be causing your AC unit to not properly disperse cold air:
