What Is Air Balancing and How Can It Help You

In 1732, Henri Pitot, an engineer from France studying fluid dynamics, developed the basis for what is known today as air balancing. Air balancing is the best way to fine-tune your home’s air conditioning system to always be at optimum performance—cooling your home adequately while keeping energy consumptions at reasonable levels. Sierra Air, Inc. technicians are some of the few certified individuals who can properly utilize air balancing techniques to make sure that your home’s HVAC system is always at its best.

What Is Air Balancing and How Can It Help You

Why You Need Air Balancing

Air balancing works by taking in warm air, cooling it down, and then circulating the cooled air back into your home. Airflow is an essential part of this process and anything that dampens the free flow of air can greatly affect your HVAC system’s performance. Many air conditioning contractors and technicians are certified to install, maintain, and repair HVAC units, however, only a few are trained to optimize airflow in a home. In fact, most air-conditioned homes today operate at 30-50% capacity due to poor air balancing planning, which costs homeowners hundreds of dollars every year for essentially nothing.

Our professionals are NCI-certified technicians trained to diagnose, test, and adjust the ductwork in your home for proper air balancing.
