Weak air flow


I recently purchased a condo and the AC in my master bath blows out VERY weak. The other vents in my home have air flowing through fine. Do I need to have it cleaned? Its only the one vent and yes, I have it open

Unlikey to be "clogged", so cleaning probably won't solve the problem. Maybe its crushed, crimped or the damper is closed down. Can you get to the ductwork?

try adjusting the rest if the vents in your home, if you close all of them slightly you should see an improvement in the one room that is still open, this is called balancing your system

My home has three bathrooms and there is almost no airflow from them. It's probably done by design. You probably don't want your breathing air circulating from the least sanitary rooms in the house.

Guess that means you hold your breath while your in the bathroom.

Saves water that way. From those short showers.
