An air balancing test may need to be conducted if your HVAC system is not cycling air evenly throughout your house. Uneven distribution of air will cause certain rooms in your home to not heat up or cool down to your desired temperature. An unbalanced heating or air conditioning system will also cycle on more frequently because the temperature is not reaching where your homes thermostat is located.
Air Balance Test
Stan’s can administer an air balancing test to find out where there could be issues with how your home is distributing air. The balancing test will check for possible leaks in vents, broken HVAC parts, and untuned HVAC settings. Most air balancing issues can be fixed from adjusting the flow of your HVAC unit. However, there can be larger issues with your home’s air ducts that may need repairs.
Mold is the most common indoor air pollutant and can easily grow if moisture is present inside your home. Mold spores are found everywhere and are common indoors, but they often do not have the right climate to grow in. During the winter months when the inside of your home can build up moisture and condensation, mold can grow and spread.
When mold spores have the proper moisture they will grow and spread spores through the air. To properly remove mold from your home you should first clean the areas where the mold has formed with a diluted bleach solution.
Do you have mold in your home? If a mold tester confirms that there is mold in your home, we offer mold investigations to determine if your A/C system is causing your mold problem.
Stan’s offers a comprehensive system performance test to find any issues that may need to be repaired, or any settings that can improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. If your HVAC system is cycling on frequently or has developed any issues, a performance test will troubleshoot your system to find improvements and possible repairs. We suggest a system performance test for homes and buildings with older HVAC systems that may need improvements to increase energy efficiency.
