How to avoid hot and cold spots indoors
Balancing the air will improve air circulation, increase energy efficiency and enhance the overall performance of your air conditioning and heating system. Delivering the right amount of air, be it cold or hot, to each room is very important. Therefore, making your indoor area more comfortable.
Air balancing for a HVAC technician is the process of testing and adjusting your system using their skill and tools of the trade. They look at your intake and output and adjust accordingly.
A comfort balance is as simple as checking whether or not a room feels comfortably conditioned. That may require a HVAC professional or technician who will go around and actually balance a system. This may require installing dampers or moving registers.
