    Heat pump air handler suddenly INCREASES air flow by double????

    I have a 3 ton heat pump system. The heat pump unit failed. I have just had the air handler on with no power to the heat pump to get air flow while I wait for A whole new system install - including new ductwork. After a couple of days, *suddenly* the air flow increased by more than double. On the far end of home registers, where for years I had to put my hand up to the register to see if there was any air flow, now I can stand 8 feet away and feel a breeze. I'd love to know what caused that all to suddenly change. I'd love to know if 'something' was blocking the air flow which had caused the 7 year old system to never have a chance to work properly, to cause a failed capacitor a few years ago, and also to cause the entire heat pump to fail.

    Please help if you can.

    Thank you.

    Only way to know is to check inside the duct work.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
