What is Balanced Ventilation?

You want the air in your home to be fresh and clean. If you have a heating and air conditioning system, you also need a balanced ventilation or ducting system. Your ventilation system helps direct and control the air inside your home. A balanced setup flows air in and out in a clean manner.

What Does Balancing Do?

Balancing is a way to allow fresh air into a home at the same rate stale air is being removed. Systems that depend on exhaust-only or supply-only ventilation equipment are unbalanced. This means they unbalance the air pressure inside the home, and unbalanced pressure doesn’t allow for good airflow. A balanced system is a healthier, safer way to ventilate your house.

Why Is Balanced Better?

Fresher air flowing in your home equates to breathing healthier indoor air. A balanced system will filter pollutants out of the air more efficiently and maintain pressure more reliably.

We perform system installations that will filter away air exhaust contamination and allergy irritants in your indoor air system.

Installing Balanced Ventilation Equipment

Requirements for a balanced venting setup call for a single supply point and a single exhaust point. Fresh air is brought into the home and pushed into the rooms through a ducting system. Stale air is removed through the exhaust point using a different set of ducts. Balanced venting systems are typically installed in attics because it’s easy to place vents and ducts in the open space. However, your home’s floor plan may require a different type of installation to achieve the needed balance. A qualified professional can provide you with a thorough assessment of your home.
