Be careful not to block vents

Posted 3/19/2019

I know it may be the perfect spot for that rug or couch, but it will cover up an air vent. Can covering one little air vent really be that big of a deal?! The answer is yes. Air vents need to be free and clear to prevent HVAC problems.

When a technician first installed your HVAC system, a load calculation was preformed to figure out what size your home’s condenser and furnace needed to
be to adequately cool and heat your home. The load calculation took into account how much air would flow through your system. It is a fine-tuned balance, because
a large part of achieving the proper temperature in a home is air flow.

Therefore when you block vents with furniture, drapery and rugs the entire AC has to work harder to pull air into the system to push air back out. And this extra work will take a toll on your system. Your condenser will wear out faster and will consume more energy. Agitated air flow may also cause humidity and refrigerant issues, which could led to mold and is harmful for your HVAC system.
Not to mention it can damage your furniture over time, too.
