For consistent, efficient heating and cooling to all parts of your home, as well as a healthy indoor environment, air balancing is a vital part of the solution.
A typical residential HVAC system, consisting of separate supply and return ductwork, circulates over 1,000 cubic feet per minute of conditioned air throughout the home. The system is carefully designed to match blower output with ductwork size and length, so all rooms receive appropriate air volume to maintain the thermostat setting. Air balancing is the process that makes that happen.
To restore balance, a HVAC service technician utilizes specialized tools to measure air volume entering each room, as well as airflow in return ductwork. Supply airflow can be modified by adjusting dampers inside ductwork until each room receives the proper cubic feet per minute to maintain consistent temperature control and preserve positive air pressure. Blower output will also be checked and other contributing issues, such as ductwork leakage, will be addressed.
