Air balancing of your heating and central air conditioning system is done when new equipment is installed to make sure that all the areas in your home are heated and cooled efficiently and consistently.

What Is Air Balancing?

A central air conditioning and heating system delivers air through a maze of ducts. The supply vents in different rooms allow the air to fill those spaces to make an impact or change of the existing air temperatures. However, your thermostat is usually located in one central area of the home. The thermostat only measures the temperature only in that one space. The temperature in that one space actually is controlling the entire system, but in no way does it have any effect of identifying higher or lower temperature conditions in the other rooms of your house.

An HVAC technician uses measuring tools and instruments to identify the existing airflow levels so that vents can be adjusted to increase or decrease the flow in given spaces. As these adjustments are made, a balanced supply of air is delivered to each space, allowing all spaces to be maintained at balanced temperature levels.

Why Does My HVAC System Need to Be Re-Balanced?

In many homes, individual family members have different comfort preferences. One may address this by changing the thermostat settings, but they also adjust room vents to increase or decrease airflow. People by mistake believe that closing the air vents in some rooms will allow for other rooms to be heated or cooled more efficiently and with less cost. However, the imbalance can lead to high costs as a thermostat is then adjusted based on the conditions in the room the vents were adjusted in.
