Course Length: 1.5 hours

We may understand intuitively that proper balance of a heating or cooling system will help to optimize comfort in each room of a building. We have all sat in a room where it was either too warm or too cold for comfort, while other rooms in the same building are just fine.

But another great benefit of balancing is the opportunity it represents for reduction in energy use. We are all aware of the movement towards “green buildings”. Balancing presents a great chance to help out in a way that is of primary importance to those involved with pumps. How does it do this? That is part of what we will learn in this course.
