    At Punbar Air we know how important it is to provide our clients in Houston and Katy area with the right information and make them understand the problems surfacing their system. The reason why we offer airflow testing, or static pressure testing, to our clients.

    We all rely on HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems to keep us comfortable in our homes, most times we do not realize how important they are. As the years pass, more innovations when it comes to these systems are created trying to bring us the best comfort. With the new technology, it is making it easier for system providers to make their clients understand the importance of having an efficient comfort system.

    What Is Airflow Testing?

    Well, airflow testing is an evaluation that is done to determine the current condition of your existing HVAC system and duct to make sure they are performing to their best ability. If your HVAC system is not operating at its best capacity, this raises the price of your utility bill.

    About 50% of your energy bill comes from your HVAC system, did you know that? The reason why it is so important is to determine if it is working at its full potential. With Airflow testing, we can determine the location of problems in your HVAC system and repair them before it is too late.

    Air Flow Testing Process

    We follow these steps when performing air flow testing:
    • Provide test ports for the equipment and duct systems
    • Complete airflow readings
    • Compare the results to manufacturer’s pressure ratings
    • Localize the components that have the highest-pressure drop

    By doing this testing, we will be able to give you an in-depth review of the issues that are involved in your HVAC system and how we can fix them. With the adjustment of airflow, we can accommodate the amount of heating or cooling that room needs to become comfortable.
