Rheem Furnace/Air Cond Air volume is very low


Air volume is very low, fan and heat pumps appear to be ok.
Filter cleaned and removed.
Any ideas/suggestions?
Thanks

You need to check if Evap coil is frozen. Check the copper line.

Not yet... if freeze again, probably your system is running with low charge of refrigerant.
