Air balancing is a concept not many are familiar with on a daily basis, but once you know what it is, you’ll agree it makes sense! Air balancing involves testing and adjusting your home’s heating and cooling system to distribute enough air evenly to each room. As part of the air balancing process, your professional will go through a check list of tasks to ensure this occurs, as well as related tests that help understand and evaluate how well your HVAC system is performing.
If your home has only one thermostat, it becomes impossible for heat or cold air to reach every room of the home. By employing a zoning system, this puts control in your hands because a thermostat in every room and an automatic damper in the duct can ensure enough air flow gets to each individual room. You can even control the air flow to rooms you don’t use frequently, saving you money on your monthly energy bills. Energy.gov says that heating and cooling comprises about half of the average home’s utility costs. By using smart, programmable thermostats, you can cut that energy use by up to 30 percent. Keep more money in your pocket throughout the year by being wise about zoning.
Air balancing is best left to the professionals, who have all the proper tools, materials, equipment and experience to perform this task. This job involves measuring the in-flow and out-flow of the air, recording readings, and organizing official test and balance reports, making adjustments to the HVAC system as needed. Your HVAC system should be working at optimal efficiency in order to result in the most comfort for your family, no matter what the season. If you’re looking for commercial air balancing, this is also something certified technicians can handle. In fact, in many cases of new commercial projects, you must have a licensed air balancing report in hand prior to getting a certificate of occupancy.
