A correct air balance is necessary with ducted systems to help provide uniform cooling temperatures to all rooms even those that are further from the air conditioner unit. Systems with poor air balance cause occupants to experience cooler temperatures in those rooms that are closer to the air conditioner unit, while occupants in rooms further away often feel warmer. Sometimes, installers of air conditioner systems such as Local Air Conditioning Repairs, install zone dampers, especially where long runs of ducting are needed to service all rooms.
These zone dampers usually comprise a system of blades or deflectors positioned along the run of ducting for best effect and provide uniformity of temperature in each room. The position of the deflector blades is usually set at installation and likely needs no other adjustments for the life of the air conditioner unit unless additional ducting or an air conditioner upgrade causes a change to the air flow pattern produced.

How to prevent
Air Balance problems
Air balance problems arise when some room entry grilles are located further away from the air conditioner unit than others and receive proportionally less cooling than those rooms much closer. Local Air Conditioning Repairs air conditioner installations often include zone dampers to ensure uniform temperature and air flows are experienced in each room. These zone dampers are usually fixed at installation and checked for operation during testing. Other problems causing poor air balance may be the result of penetrated ducting tube causing the loss of cooled air or poorly sealed ducting joints. Frequently, stains or other markings will be evident adjacent to the room entry grille in this case.
Local Air Conditioning Repairs recommend regular inspections to maintain your ducting in good condition. These are easy to set up and can identify and resolve any of these problems rapidly. We can inspect your whole system and check for correct air balance, restoring optimum cooling while re-establishing your family’s comfort and potentially reducing your running costs.
