I have a fairly new mobile home (2010) that I moved into last year. When the a/c turns on, the air blows to the ceiling. It blows so high that it turns the ceiling fan. I recently bought some floor registers that sit in the holes. If I try to close the vent, it literally blows the register out of its hole. I'm wondering if the blower is up too high. I also think that because it is up so high, that it is making my ducts swell. Then when it kicks off, I can hear the ducts just contracting back down. What do you guys think? Should I lower the blower speed, or is this normal with mobile home a/c units?
I really doesn't take much to turn a ceiling fan, our pellet stove will do it. Lifting the registers out of the ducts on the other hand.... I think I would try to figure out a way to reduce the air flow some.

Got a model number off the Air Handler in the closet? If the fan is Multi-Speed you should be able to adjust it down but I do not know if that would make that big difference. You should have speeds, High, Medium-High, Medium-Low, Low. It's probably set on High right now and I wouldn't go any lower than Medium-High or you might have problems. Either that or find a local HVAC/Handy guy to install some dampers in the supply feeds.
