Surprisingly, when new heating and cooling systems are installed in most Chicagoland homes and businesses, the systems are almost never properly balanced. That is because throughout the country, there are less than 5,000 technicians who are certified as air balance system specialists. At Comfort Keepers, we are very proud of the fact that we have this important certification.
Air balancing makes sure that each room or office or area of a building receives the right amount of hot or cold air. We often hear complaints that a previously installed central HVAC system “is not working,” because there are such wide differences from room to room. We often tell customers that the problem may not be with the system, but as a result of the fact that the system was never balanced.
Air balancing an HVAC system makes sure that each room is at the same temperature and it ensures each room has cleaner air, better humidity control and ultimately allows you to save money. Why keep turning up the heat in a cold room when the system merely needs balancing with the other comfortable rooms?
When Comfort Keepers balances a system, we first inspect the HVAC system, then diagnose the problems, make repairs if necessary and then balance from room to room. We use the latest diagnostic equipment to measure things such as static pressure to bring about greater heating and cooling efficiency throughout your space.
Please remember that Comfort Keepers NCI Certified Air Balancing professionals have more training and experience than an HVAC technician. We test for overall efficiency and air quality, and not just to sell you a system or costly repairs you may not need.
