How Redirecting Air Vents Can Help Improve HVAC Efficiency

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

While many homeowners don’t realize it, the air vents located around the house actually play a big role in an HVAC system’s energy efficiency. If you want to get the most out of your heating and cooling system, then this is something you should definitely think about. After all, who wouldn’t want to reduce their electric bills? In today’s post, pro air conditioner service provider Modern Air Solutions explains how aiming and redirecting your air vents can do wonders for your HVAC system’s overall performance.

Utilize natural airflow. You don’t need a physics degree to understand that hot air rises and cold air falls. To maximize your heating system in the summer, you should adjust your vents so that cold air flows upward if your vents are located near the floor. During the cold winter months, on the other hand, assuming your vents are located near the ceiling, they should be positioned downward so that it’s easier for your HVAC system to keep your room at a comfortable temperature.

Furniture and doorways. When it comes to your HVAC system, you probably don’t give the placement of your vents or what’s directly in front of them too much thought. If your vents are near windows or doors, you should redirect air so that it flows away from these openings to prevent conditioned air from escaping.

Large pieces of furniture like bookshelves or anything that can obstruct airflow should also be kept away from your vents. Blockages will cause your HVAC system to work harder, which can shorten its lifespan and cause your energy bills to skyrocket.

From residential air conditioner repair to commercial furnace installation and everything in between, when it comes to your HVAC system, turn to the experts at Modern Air Solutions.
