HVAC Testing, Adjusting and Balancing (TAB)
Air and Water Balancing
Testing, adjusting, and balancing is the systematic process of measuring, adjusting and recording the air and water flow quantities on major HVAC components, and assuring that the systems meet the design intent.
The process is typically performed on newly installed HVAC systems during the construction phase of commercial projects, but rebalancing existing facilities and HVAC surveys are common demands. Each air and water system component, including the control systems will be placed through a series of tests and verification processes to insure that the mechanical systems and building automation controls are functioning as designed and operating at their optimal performance capabilities.
Test and balance technicians must understand fan operating characteristics, the theory of fluid flow, fan and pulley laws, psychometrics, how to utilize the instruments needed to take flow and pressure readings, and how to make the necessary adjustments to the system components. As a key component to the overall success of an HVAC installation, ETB takes great pride in its procedures, care, and integrity that is placed on every project.
“Our commitment to professional independent testing and balancing, customer satisfaction, and most of all, honesty and integrity are the key to our growth and success.”
Because AABC stands by the work of its member companies, the AABC National Performance Guaranty applies to any test and balance work performed by an AABC member.
