AIR BALANCE
A job requiring air balancing is typically for commercial use, and is also a third-party verification requirement for the Department of Building & Safety, and for mechanical engineers in both remodels and new construction. Often commercial kitchen exhaust hoods require a certified air-balance report. Air balancing can also be used as a tool for airflow diagnostics. We are certified in commercial air and water balancing. Our reports are comprehensive yet easy to read.

SYSTEM PERFORMANCE
System Performance Testing is a highly specialized procedure. Through a series of tests, we are able to determine a system’s delivered capacity. This allows us to establish a starting point on actual BTU (British Thermal Unit) delivery into conditioned space. Without this type of testing, we have no way of knowing where to start, or where we need to go. Once this procedure is completed, we can offer an accurate view of what it takes for optimum performance.
This service measures:
♦ Static Pressure
♦ Wet Bulb Readings
♦ Dry Bulb Readings
♦ Air Flow
♦ Temperature Change
♦ Enthalpy Change
♦ Refrigerant Cycle
