Failing ac air handler fan.

Hey everyone,
I was wondering if a failing ac air handler fan motor would start to show signs of poor performance. Such as not spinning fast enough/not moving air fast enough?
Thanks in advance.

While anything is possible, usually motors don't slow down. If you have insufficient airflow, the first thing to check is the air filter. Dirty filters can cause a reduction in airflow. Unless you have recently done so, I would suggest that you replace the air filter and see if that makes a difference.
