Balancing Air Flow begins with the Air Handling Unit, whether it be a Rooftop unit, a Split System or Packaged system. TAB Services uses Shortridge meter, calibrated once a year, to test the proper amount of air from the unit to the supply or return grilles. Once this is established, each individual grille is measured and balanced accordingly.
In certain situations Air Flow is critical. One example is in Medical Facilities where Room Pressurization is a must. Creating a positive pressure room keeps unwanted airborne toxins out. Kitchen Hood Certification is another example of critical air flow. Exhausting fumes from an area such as a restaurant or cafeteria is important to prevent issues from smoke.
We perform complete Air Balancing Tests on all HVAC equipment including Clean rooms, Hospitals, Schools, Military Establishments and more.
