common airflow problems in home

If you own a forced-air heating system (a furnace with vents rather than a boiler with radiators or baseboards), you may sometimes experience uneven temperatures in your home – an upstairs that gets too hot, for example. While there could be several causes of this problem, one possible culprit is poor airflow.

Airflow plays an important and often overlooked part in the performance of your HVAC heating system; poor airflow could lead to problems such as hot and cold spots, pressure imbalances (drafts, doors slamming by themselves, etc.), and air temperature issues (cool air from your furnace, warm air from your A/C, etc.).
