I have an AC which has 3 ducts coming out of it. Only one duct gets flow - I'm guessing the AC fan blows right into it. What can I do to improve the flow?

This is the most annoying problem I face as a home owner. I despise it. – Evil Elf Jun 7 '11 at 12:39

You need to restrict the flow through that duct, either by installing a damper like this in the duct, or by installing an adjustable register at the duct outlet, and closing it off until you get similar flow out of all three ducts.

OK, finally dealing with this problem. The issue is that the flexible ducting came TOTALLY loose from the register box - amazing! That'll cause a flow issue. – Sam Jun 19 '12 at 17:25
