Air Balancing

The efficiency of a commercial HVAC unit is due to multiple factors, including how well air is able to flow into each room. While some may assume that stuffy, dry, or extreme conditions may be a result of an inefficient unit, it is actually a sign of poor air balance. Poor air balance can lead to swings in humidity levels, condensation, exhaust products, or smoke lingering in rooms, as well as general discomfort among employees. All Temp, serving the Kissimmee area, can help you assess whether your HVAC troubles are a result of poor air balancing.

Air Balancing

In order to ensure that your commercial air conditioning unit is delivering the necessary air and air pressure to each room in the building. Performed by an industry professional, a technician will assess the airflow using different registers in the building, as well as use manometers to check system pressure. A technician will also assess both the heat and humidity levels in each room during an air balancing inspection.

While it’s helpful to include air balancing with your routine maintenance, it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of poor air balancing. Signs include:

  • Low airflow
  • Warm air being blown from the unit
  • Pressure imbalance
  • Hot and cold spots
