What Is Duct Balancing and Why Is It Important?
Most homeowners don’t think about their ductwork too often. After all, unlike your heating and air conditioning units, you can’t see your air ducts right in front of you. As a result, your ductwork is one of the components of your HVAC system that is harder to maintain and it is important to not forget about your ductwork. At Valley Heating, Cooling, Electrical and Solar, we offer a number of quality duct services, including duct balancing to help maintain consistent temperatures in your home. Keep reading for more about what duct balancing is and why it’s important, and remember that for all your ductwork and larger HVAC needs, you can always count on our skilled technicians at Valley Heating, Cooling, Electrical and Solar.
Duct Balancing 101
If the temperature in your home varies greatly from room to room, it’s quite possible the problem is your air duct system. This can happen when your registers are not calibrated properly, resulting in the uneven airflow coming from your ducts. Fortunately, through the fairly simple process of duct balancing, our HVAC techs can evaluate the level and direction of airflow coming from your ducts, so temperatures are more evenly distributed across your residential or commercial property.
Our air duct balancing process includes:
- Testing for duct leakage
- Observing and correcting uneven airflow
- Performing heating or cooling units comprehensive tests
- Offering solutions to improve your indoor air quality
With temperatures that are even throughout your home or commercial building, you can eliminate hot and cold spots, so everyone is more comfortable year-round. Additionally, your heating and cooling system won’t be overexerted from trying to change the temperature in one room which will save you money on your utility bill. And as mentioned above, ducts that flow more evenly also tend to create fewer air quality issues, meaning duct balancing is a great way to help everyone feel better and breathe easier.
