Air Balancing for Good Indoor Air Quality
March 16, 2010 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
To achieve good indoor air quality, periodically air balance your HVAC system.
Air balancing can help alleviate hot or cold spots, drafty or stagnant areas, insufficient or excess humidity, and noise problems. The goal of air balancing is to deliver the proper amount of air, minimizing imposed resistance.
Periodic air balancing as part of an overall IAQ program can improve air quality, and at the same time, lower energy costs and lengthen system life.
