Have you ever noticed that certain rooms in your home are much warmer than others? Can you feel the air flow out of vents in some rooms while other rooms are stagnant?
These are signs your home’s heating and air conditioning system is not properly balanced.
What is Air Balancing?
Air balancing is the process of making sure the air from your heating and air conditioning system is being evenly distributed throughout your home. It can involve adding more vents to certain rooms, re-installing ductwork and/or adjusting the size of certain ducts.
Benefits of Air Balancing
Getting your air conditioning and heating system properly balanced has a few key benefits, including:
PROLONGS THE LIFE OF YOUR AIR CONDITIONER & HEATER
Balanced systems distribute the air more efficiently throughout your home, reducing strain on your heater and air conditioner that can lead to costly breakdowns.
ELIMATES FRUSTRATING HOT & COLD SPOTS
If there are areas in your home that are constantly too hot or too cold, properly balancing your system can help.
INCREASES ENERGY EFFICIENCY
(AND LOWERS UTILITY BILLS)
Because balanced systems distribute air more efficiently, your heating and air conditioning system have to run less to get your home to the temperature set on your thermostat.
