In a way you can think of air balance the 'air police' because we found every defect in an installation. We knew the install better than the installing contractor. best job i ever had.
    Sure you can,with the way systems are installed on a daily basis your competetion is creating work for you.

    I will give you a hint,you won't have to balance anybody elses systems but yours & the ones you test & sell duct renovation on.

    You are passing up a goldmine,you have the knowledge & tools use them.

    You say it can't be done I would have to disagree,our company along with many more are doing it on a daily basis & using to seperate ourselves from the low ballers & hacks.

    As you pointed out it will reveal every defect in the system,not just the equipment.

    If your are interseted click on my tag line.

    hey, thats really cool! I may just look into adding that service because I miss doing air balance work. You are right, to many contractors work by rule of thumb and I have seen crap new installs and it drives me crazy. Once you have seen a great commerical job installed and then see what some home builders have done, makes me wonder why they want so much for there crap house.

    You will be surprised how much fun it makes the job.

    But in reality every system should be given a proper TAB,otherwise it is a guess if it is working as designed.

    What is this commissioning of which you speak?
    It is an elite sniper squad.

    And a bunch of forms with blanks which once filled out with a certification stamp says, “Now you know the truth”.
