    Reduced Air Coming Through Vents – Hamilton Inspection & Repair

    About car air vents:

    car air conditioningFunctioning air vents are crucial to your vehicle’s ventilation / air conditioning (AC) system, particularly on hot or cold days. If these vents stop working or have reduced air flow, your air-conditioning system will not work or will have reduced performance. This, limits the control you have over your car’s temperature.

    What causes air vent issues?

    There are several common causes for malfunctioning air vents. These include:

    • A blown fuse – Your vehicle’s ventilation relies on a small fuse to function properly. If the fuse is blown, the circuit will be cut, causing the vents to stop working. In this case, you will need to have the fuse replaced.
    • Broken hose – There are several small hoses used to make your ventilation system work. If any of these hoses are punctured or ripped, your air vents may not produce air as expected.
    • Failing motor – There is a small motor which sends air through the vents in your car. Over time, this motor can become damaged and affect the flow of air to your vehicle’s cabin.
    • Blockages in the air vent hoses – such as small glass fragments from a previously broken windscreen or window, or children putting items into the vents can reduce or block airflow.
    • Blocked Cabin Filter – A cabin filter is part of the vehicles ventilation / air conditioning (A/C) system. If it gets blocked it can significantly reduce air flow into the vehicles cabin.This will decrease the air conditioning (AC) systems effectiveness and can increase cabin air temperature (on hot days), meaning the engine and air conditioning have to work harder to try to heat or cool the cabin.This uses more engine power to drive the vehicles air conditioning, and reduces the horse power available to power the vehicles wheels.Another direct effect of a blocked / dirty cabin filter is that increased air pollutants such as pollen and dust that may enter the cabin, which is very bad for your general health and especially bad for allergy sufferers.
