Delving into HVAC System Testing
HVAC systems can present a range of issues where symptoms are evident, yet the underlying cause remains elusive. Often, there’s a tendency to address these symptoms superficially without delving into the core problem. This is where a proficient Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing (TAB) firm plays a critical role, employing established procedures to accurately diagnose and test the entirety of the system, including its controls. Consider the example of zone temperature inconsistencies. It’s easy to prematurely conclude that these are due to balancing issues or insufficient design airflow. However, a thorough examination and testing might reveal a host of other potential causes – from equipment undersizing (design load issues), poor installation (like improperly sealed or connected ductwork) to balance (incorrect grille proportions) or control issues (improperly calibrated airflow sensors or thermostats). If a technician quickly assumes one of those possibilities and tries to take corrective action, they are often guessing and may cause more issues down the road.
