What is Air Balancing and How Can it Benefit Your Home?

What is Air Balancing and How Can it Benefit Your Home?Everyone wants a heating and cooling system that’s efficient, but how efficient it actually depends largely upon who balanced the airflow is that carries air that’s been heated and cooled throughout your home.

When you work with Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing and get air balancing services, we’ll take your home through a series of tests to see how airflow is and will then make adjustments to optimize your airflow. Our goal is for every client to have temperatures that are even and comfortable in every room of the house.

Air balancing can have a huge impact on your home’s energy efficiency

Would you be surprised to learn that between 30% and 50% of homes in the United States don’t have enough airflow? This can lead not only to comfort issues but unnecessary costs. Why? Because this imbalance requires your heating and cooling equipment to work much harder to get the temperatures you’re asking of it in every room of your home. Now is the time to contact Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing and let us check out how balanced your home really is.

Here’s what you can expect during our visit

When you call on Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing for an air balancing visit, the first step is that one of our highly trained and skilled HVAC technicians is going to come out and perform numerous tests. These tests are designed to see how your airflow is working right now. Once they have a better idea of that, then they’ll provide you with information and recommendations as to how your system could be improved.

We’ll test at every air register

We go to each air register in your home and test the volume of airflow using an air balancing hood, the pressure on the system by using a manometer, and both the temperature and the humidity of the air using a hygrometer. As you can see, this is more than standing in front of your vents and checking to see if we can feel air coming out.

Some recommendations we might offer

Of course, the recommendations we offer will vary based on where your airflow is today, where we want to get it to, and other practical facts. However, some common recommendations we offer include reconfiguring the ductwork in your home, to sealing leaks in your home, to upgrading to an HVAC system that’s capable of handling the workload you’re asking of it.
