Air and water balancing is a vital part of commercial HVAC maintenance. The process involves using specialized equipment to measure the air and water flowing through your system, as well as temperatures and pressures. The tests performed by our technicians will help them recalibrate your system, returning it to peak efficiency.
How do you know if your HVAC system needs air and water balancing? If you answer yes to any of these questions, it might be time to consider it.
Have you noticed a change in your indoor air quality?
Your HVAC system filters your indoor air. If the airflow is no longer optimized, you may notice a decrease in air quality, an increase in indoor allergy symptoms, excessive dust on flat surfaces, and strange odors coming from your HVAC registers.
Have you received complaints about uncomfortable conditions?
When the water flowing through your coils isn’t optimized, areas of your building or facility may become too cold, too hot, or too humid. Air and water balancing can help find and correct the issue.
Have you experienced an unexplained increase in your energy bills?
An increase in your energy bills means that your HVAC system is working longer and harder than usual. By adjusting the airflow at fans and outlets and correctly setting the water flow to pumps, coils, and valves, you can cut energy costs and increase efficiency.
Here are some of the actions we’ll take to ensure your system is running properly:
- Airflow measurement
- Fan tracking
- Volumetric tracking
- Duct leak testing
- Air outlet measurement
- Vibration isolation
- Damper adjustment and lock
- Automatic temperature control systems
- Blower door testing
- Flushing and cleaning strainers and piping
- Filling system to the proper level
- Measuring and recording pump amperages and voltages
