Home Maintenance: How to Balance HVAC Air Flow

Last updated 6 years ago

When your HVAC is installed, the technician uses specialized testing equipment to make sure that the airflow is balanced in your home. As your system gets older, however, the airflow in your home might become unbalanced, which means uneven temperatures from room to room. Balancing HVAC airflow will not only make your home more comfortable, but it will also make the system run more efficiently (and that means lower energy bills). So, how does one balance HVAC airflow?

First, walk through your home and take note of the areas that seem too warm or too cold. In order to properly balance the airflow, you must first determine where the biggest temperature fluctuations are. Once you determine which rooms are uneven, you can then adjust the diffuser blades in those rooms to maximize cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. This video will show you how.
