Static pressure is air resistance. According to the National Comfort Institute (NCI), static pressure is the measurement of how hard your fan has to work to move air throughout your ductwork. For example, when you have more resistance in your HVAC system, this increases the static pressure to make it harder for air to flow through.
Knowing the static pressure of your heating and cooling system is an essential way to understand the overall health of your HVAC unit. At Polar Bear Mechanical, we can balance the air in your ductwork to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. As a member of the NCI, we have the most up-to-date knowledge of static pressure. With our air balancing services, you never have to worry about your HVAC unit wasting energy again. Our specialized technicians have the proper equipment and static pressure knowledge to make sure the air in your home or business is balanced.
You want the pressure within your duct system to be balanced. That means you don’t want static pressure that’s too high or too low. Uneven air pressure may be due to improperly sized equipment, such as a furnace that’s too small or too big.
Did you know almost half of all HVAC systems are sized improperly? The HVAC systems that have improper static pressure can’t perform to their maximum abilities. When a component of your HVAC unit isn’t the correct size for your space, it affects the entire system and can lead to uncomfortable and costly issues.
