When I consulted with a local heating, ventilation and A/C supplier, looking for ways to improve energy efficiency throughout our home, he recommended something called air balancing. The process involves modifying the heating plus cooling plan to ensure that air is evenly distributed to every room. Testing, changing, plus balancing is essential for achieving peak heating/cooling operation. In order to ensure optimum flow with full performance, all components require testing with adjustment, including dampers, fan speeds, pressures, plus temperature controls. If there are tepid or even freezing pockets in the home, airflow issues, or areas which get more conditioned air than others, professional air balancing is the solution to go with. Typically, the heating, ventilation and A/C supplier can resolve airflow issues with some adjustments to the existing heating/cooling system, including duct sealing plus ductwork retrofits. Studies have found that over half of all brand new heating, ventilation and A/C systems are installed wrong, which results in energy waste, discomfort plus higher running costs. When airflow is balanced, the heating/cooling component operates more efficiently and smoothly. By sealing leaks in ductwork while also improving air circulation, the conditioned air is delivered into your home rather an allowed to escape outdoors. The stronger airflow results in shorter heating/cooling cycles, less wear and tear on components plus cost savings. Sealing leaks in the ductwork prevents dust, mold, plus harmful contaminants from accumulating within the heating/cooling system. The air entering your home is cleaner, creating a healthier indoor environment to live in. Balanced airflow also eliminates unpleasant temperature fluctuation in the home. While professional air balancing is an upfront investment, the improved energy efficiency, fewer repairs plus lengthened repair life of component easily recovers the cost.
