Sometimes you’re looking for an excuse to escape your office or workplace just because you feel you can’t breathe there? Working from home is pretty common now with the pandemic.
Experts also say properly engineered airflow and ventilation will help prevent airborne pollutants such as coronavirus from transmitting and circulating around the house.
Issues with indoor air quality also arise from problems with airflow from the air conditioning system. Here are some quick measures to increase the flow of air in your office.
Check for blocked ventilation
Particularly if your office has hot and cold spots and unpredictable temperatures, workers are likely to deal with their discomfort by closing or blocking registers and winds for air conditioning. Such activities alter the way air moves through the system and exacerbate the problem in reality. Ensure all vents and registers are open and not covered by furniture to improve airflow.
Clear debris from the exteriors
The condensing unit of your air conditioner, usually located either outside or in a ventilated equipment space, requires unimpeded airflow to release heat and prevent overheating. If your unit is outside, improve airflow by ensuring that any leaves or debris accumulated around the unit are removed.
Switch the filters regularly
Your air conditioner has filters that remove dust and debris from the air and prevent the air conditioner from entering and damaging its parts. If a pipe is clogged, it often stops air from reaching the network. That causes problems with airflow and stuffy air. It also makes the device work harder to cool your space, which can lead to more frequent breakdowns.
To boost airflow, make sure that you adjust your filters according to the instructions of your equipment supplier. It can be as regular as once a month, depending on how often you use the system.
Check the state of the ducts
If your air conditioning ducts are open, a maintenance person should check to see whether they are clogged with dust, or if there are gaps or cracks in which air conditioning is fleeing. When they are inside walls or crawling areas, you can need to call an AC professional to inspect them and then clean or fix where appropriate.
If none of these issues proves to be the culprit, your system will likely have maintenance problems and require an AC professional ‘s expertise to improve airflow.
Check the condenser coil
The condenser coil of your device, which is part of the external part of the system, is separated from the air by expelling it outside the house. The condenser coil does not perform well unless it is coated by a coating of air and grime.
If that occurs, heat distribution is hampered, and the machine needs to work harder to do its job, contributing to airflow issues, decreased strain on the components, and even device failure.
Check for issues with the fan
Your air conditioner has blower motors and fans to help you push the air into the ducts and through the rooms to require ventilation. Whether the fan motor is sluggish or the fan itself is filled in grime and turns quicker than expected, the air can not be easily pushed by the system. It’s an easy matter to clean the fan and increase the movement of air.
