Why isn’t much air coming from the floor or ceiling vents?

If a room is not getting cooled or heated like the other rooms, it’s very likely there are some simple checks to do before calling your service company. Here are some of the checks you can perform:

  • Check the air filters – both at the intake and return if any. They may be dirty of blocked.
  • Check the air vents to the room(s). Are they open, blocked/covered?
  • If there is less air flow through the register, it’s likely the air duct to the room is long, has some restrictions, or a damper may be partially closed. Check the ductwork if it’s in the basement or attic. Open the damper if there’s one.
  • If there is low air pressure coming from all the room vents, it’s likely that the fan motor speed is not right. This does require a professional, so give us a call today.
