No blowing air


I live in a double wide mobile home. Along the front wall in my living room, I have 2 air vents. On this same wall further down in another room, an air vent blows hard. After an inspection, I had to crawl underneath and fix 2 torn ducts. The 2 air vents in my living room still do not blow air. My outside unit is brand new so I know its not the actual unit. I am assumming the ducts are blocked. Is there an easy way to check for bocked air passages? Or is there another problem this rookie home owner doesnt know?

No blowing air


When under neath did you run the unit to see if there was any air at the connection point?

How did you fix the ducts that were torn?

Did you inspect the torn ducts for something that may have crawled up inside them?

Did you replace the torn duct with flexible duct or hard-pipe?

If you used flex make sure there are no kinks. hard pipe would be better for air-flow and to prevent critter intrusion.
