Air Conditioning System Balancing in Philadelphia

Is your Philadelphia, PA, or Montgomery County, PA, home cooling as effectively as it should? If you aren’t getting the cooling you need when temperatures soar, you may need air conditioning system balancing. AC system balancing from a reputable, certified air balance company can help extend the life of your air conditioning unit and make your home life more pleasant.

Guaranteed can perform air balancing, which is the process of optimizing your HVAC system to ensure that the output is consistent and provides the right temperature of the air.

Why Does My System Need Air Balancing?

If you have certain rooms in your house that are warmer than others, or if you have certain “hot” or “cold” spots throughout the house, then there’s a good chance that your unit needs some help to correct the airflow issues and evenly distribute cold air throughout the building.

AC system balancing starts with testing and modifying the existing HVAC system so that it delivers the optimal flow throughout the building. Air conditioning system balancing improves the comfort level of the home and improves the AC unit’s efficiency, decreases your energy bills, and reduces wear and tear on the unit.

How an Air Balance Company Can Help You

There are several advantages to HVAC balancing, including tests performed by a professional airflow balancing company. These tests create a virtual map of the airflow throughout your home and help to determine where the temperature inconsistencies are, thus identifying the underlying problem.

HVAC issues that air balance testing can find include:

  • Loose duct joints
  • Damaged or perforated air ducts
  • Incorrectly installed or too-long ductwork
  • Blockages in the ducts or excessive debris

Air Duct Balancing Solutions

A professional air conditioning system balancing company may be able to solve your temperature inconsistencies by simply calibrating the thermostat or adjusting the fan speeds. Or, you may need to install dampers or alter the angle of existing ones in order to achieve optimal airflow. Sometimes our findings indicate that you need a home air conditioning recharge service.

Your technician will also conduct air duct balancing as part of the air balance testing, and if they should find that the airflow is off due to a problem with the ducts, they’ll make an assessment to the best course of action to fix it. You may have collapsed ducts, or simply need to re-seal some of the seams and connections. Typically, a collapsed or damaged duct should be replaced, although we can fix loose duct joints through sealing the junction or refitting the connection.

How Does Air Conditioning System Balancing Work?

Your appointment will begin with a test of the system, measuring the amount of air exiting from the different vents around the house. We place flow hoods over the air supply registers and evaluate the air pressure using a manometer to measure the air coming out. We may also use a hygrometer to measure the humidity in the home and different rooms, as well as determine heat gains and losses.

Depending on our findings, we’ll make recommendations for repairing or replacing your HVAC system. Regular HVAC balancing has several benefits:

  • Better air quality
  • Longer lifespan of your HVAC unit
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Greater comfort levels
