Balancing HVAC System: Preliminary Procedures Mobile App
A well performed testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB) of a HVAC system is essential for the proper performance of that system and can enhance indoor air quality and efficiency.
How does it work?
The Balancing HVAC System: Preliminary Procedures mobile app was developed to assist in air balancing and air flow of air conditioning and water cooling systems to improve indoor air quality. A systematic approach is called for when balancing a HVAC air and water systems. The app includes is a general procedures that can be applied to all systems. Routine testing will improve energy efficacy. Inspect the job site to see that the building is architecturally ready for balancing. For instance, are all the walls, windows, door, and ceilings installed? If the conditioned space isn’t architecturally sealed, abnormal pressures and temperatures will adversely affect the system balance. Next, walk the air and water distribution system to ensure that they are intact, and aren’t missing components such as dampers, valves, pressure and temperature taps, coils, terminal boxes, diffusers, grilles, etc. Lastly, inspect the equipment. Check that motors, fans, pumps, chillers, compressors, boilers, drives, etc. are mechanically and electrically ready.
