You may be surprised to learn that over half of all new HVAC systems are improperly installed. This means that something is wrong with the size and/or design of the HVAAC and the duct system. The process of air balancing involves the modification of your existing HVCA system to ensure that the air is distributed evenly throughout the home. Hot and cold spots in the home can be corrected with professional air balancing. The best air flow is achieved with the mechanical regulation of air balancing. Airflow problems can be corrected when adjustments are made to the duct sealing, duct dampers and ductwork retrofits.
Advantages of Proper Air Balancing
1. Improved energy efficiency. Your HVAC system will work more efficiently when the airflow is balanced. Improvements will be made to the air ducts during the air balancing process. When air leaks are sealed, circulation is improved. There will be less air that escapes and means the air flow will go where it’s supposed to go. This will improve the air flow by making it stronger and therefore improves energy efficiently. This is good news for your HVAC system.
2. Increased indoor air comfort. The number one reason homeowners call for air balancing is because they aren’t getting enough conditioned air into their homes. After air balancing has been performed, uncomfortable hot and cold spots can be eliminated in the home.
3. Longer HVAC life. When air leaks are sealed, and ductwork is modified it will prevent dust dirt, mold and other contaminants from clogging up your HVAC system. This will improve airflow and make it easier for your HVAC system to function by reducing the stress these contaminants can bring to the system. Yes, you’ll pay a little more to have the service done but the savings will be well worth it in the long because you’ll have less repairs, improved energy and a longer lasting HVAC system.
Heating, Cooling, Ventilation & Insulation Air Balancing
All homes require insulation to keep air from getting in and out of the home. The only problem is that insulation can also create indoor air quality problems along with ventilation problems. Ventilation is an important part of a properly functioning HVAC system. Indoor air and outdoor air is exchanged with ventilation to maintain safe combustion processes and indoor air quality. If there are ventilation problems, dangerous fumes and contaminants can build up and present health hazards in your home. Improper ventilation can cause formaldehydes, carbon monoxide, radon and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to buildup and circulate through your home. On top of that potential hazard, you may be a risk of mold, mildew and moisture problems in your home.
