Air balancing will improve air circulation, increase energy efficiency and enhance the overall performance of your air conditioning and heating system. For a homeowner, it means delivering the right amount of air (hot or cold) to each room making your home more comfortable.
Air balancing for a HVAC technician is the process of testing and adjusting your system using their skill and tools of the trade. They look at your intake and output and adjust accordingly.
Rob Falke, President, National Comfort Institute -- an HVAC-based training company, adds "balancing is the single-most important step that can be taken to assure your systems produce comfort and operate efficiently."
In this article, I'll share ways you can do-it-yourself to adjust (balance) your airflow for comfort. A comfort balance is as simple as checking whether a room feels comfortably conditioned. Then, I'll share ways that may require a HVAC professional and I'll help you understand how a technician will go about actually balancing a residential system. This may require installing dampers or moving registers.
