Air Balancing and Measurement
In its simplest form, Air Balancing is the process of testing and adjusting your air conditioning system to deliver the right amount of air to each room in your Massachusetts home. The actual Air Balancing process includes a number of related tests that determine the performance of your air conditioning and heating system. Air balancing hoods are used to measure the amount of air at each grille. Manometers measure system pressures. Hygrometers measure system temperature and humidity. The results of all these tests are compiled into a report to determine how well your system is functioning.
At Wilson Services, Inc. we check the static pressure of your system whenever repairing or planning to replace your heating and/or cooling equipment. A familiar comparison is when you go to your doctor, someone always checks your blood pressure. Like blood pressure, static pressure is one of the key vital signs of your heating and/or cooling system. This test helps our technicians identify any significant blockage or leakage. With this initial testing along with an in-depth interview, we can recommend the appropriate diagnostic tests followed by recommendations to correct existing issues and optimize your homes comfort and energy efficiency.
