Ventilation is one aspect of homeownership that may not be as intuitive as mowing the lawn. However, the way that you cool and heat your home is key. One of the most common questions we get is, ”Should I keep all the air vents in my house open?”
Why Should Vents Stay Open?
The short answer is yes. You should keep all the air vents in your house open. By doing so, you reduce the buildup of pressure and heat in your cooling system and support a balanced circulation of air. Proper ventilation also decreases the potential accumulation of dust and allergens that could impact your health.
When vents are closed, this reduces airflow. Reduced airflow causes a slower flow of air and increased pressure within the system. If this continues, air will create new leaks in ductwork, reducing the efficiency of your unit, overall. Additionally, reduced airflow means that rooms are not heated or cooled at the rate in which they should be. This could lead to longer running times for your furnace.
If you have been keeping some vents closed or are interested in learning about how to best support your home’s ventilation, an AC maintenance appointment could help.
