The Purpose of Air Balancing

Have you noticed inconsistent temperatures in different rooms of your house, even when the air conditioner is running? Your HVAC system might benefit from air balancing.

Air balancing is designed to optimize the output air supply to ensure air flow and temperature are consistent from room to room. It’s designed to keep rooms at the same temperature, no matter where they are located within your home. It focuses on distribution and aims to correct problems deep within the system.

When a system is properly balanced, you’ll be more comfortable throughout your home. You’ll also find it reflected in your monthly utility bills. A more efficient HVAC system means the lowest possible cooling bills. And if your system is operating at peak performance, it also means you’ll have fewer repair bills.

When an HVAC technician tests and analyzes your home, they are creating a map of the comfort level of the building. They are looking for problems, pinpointing inconsistencies, and identifying areas where corrections will make the biggest impact. They look for:

  • Damaged ducts
  • Loose duct joints
  • Blockages
  • Undersized ducts
  • Excessively long ductwork
  • Sharp turns in the duct system
  • Areas where ducts were never installed

The Purpose of Air BalancingNot every home has perfectly installed ductwork. We’re looking for inconsistencies that can impact your entire heating and cooling process.

Only when we have a clear picture of what is currently in place can we make suggestions about how to improve it. It might be as simple as tweaking fan speed, or as complex as replacing ductwork and devices themselves.

Air balancing will:

  • Improve your comfort levels - no more hot or cold spots in your home
  • Increase energy efficiency - you won’t have to run your HVAC more to compensate for differences
  • Create better air quality - an efficient system means cleaner, healthier air
  • Increase the lifespan of your equipment - if your HVAC equipment doesn’t have to run more to create comfort throughout your home, it will increase the likelihood of a longer life

Are you ready to see how well your HVAC system operates? Air balancing may be the perfect solution for your home.
