Air Systems — Hydronics
Airflow issues can make your system run less efficiently and cause hot or cold spots within your facility. We check the airflow of your unit and adjust the system to resolve these problems. Using state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, we measure the atmosphere within your building and accurately calculate how air moves through the space. We then calibrate your HVAC system to meet current industry standards.
Our hydronics services are ideal for newly constructed buildings. We help you select a unit of the right size and check all parts to ensure optimal heating, cooling, and ventilation.
Vibration & Sound
An improperly balanced system will wear out faster, run less efficiently, and generate vibrations and noise. Ultimately, this can lead to early breakdown. We perform precise checks on out-of-balance parts to extend the life of your equipment and save you money.
Duct leakage is a major cause of inefficiencies in HVAC systems. We check your ductwork for leaks and ensure that it is tight using pressure calibration equipment. This service saves energy and cuts your power bills.
According to NFPA, every building in the United States that is over 105' in elevation (approximatley eight stories) must have pressurized stairwells. This pressurization prevents smoke from entering into the stairwell and turning it into a chimney instead of a way for people to get out of the building. If there is too much pressure, a person may be prevented from entering into the stairwell, so fans, pressure, and controls must be tested according to the local municipal authority to ensure it is up to code and operates in case of an emergecy. Let the experts at Texas Test and Balance insure that your stairwells are in compliance and, more importantly, will operate as designed during the unlikley event of a fire.
UL Fire Damper Inspections
According to UL and NFPA, Fire Dampers must be on an inspection schedule. Healthcare buildings such as Hospitals, Nursing homes, Out Patient Surgery and Proceedure Centers must have their Fire Dampers inspected to maintain the UL certification and verify that should an event take place, the fire dampers will operate as designed. These systems must be tested according to the authority having jurisdiction, current laws and regulations. Office building systems must also have their fire dampers tested according to the local code official, and others buildings vary according to state, city, or county codes. Whatever type of building you run, you can count on us for complete fire damper testing.
