HVAC TEST & BALANCE

Ensure comfortable, healthy, efficient buildings

NATIONAL. INDEPENDENT. CERTIFIED. SELF-PERFORMING.

Are you getting what you paid for? First impressions and customer experience can make or break a company. Beyond that, poor building health and air quality can make your employees sick. Melink helps ensure that commercial facilities’ HVAC systems are designed, constructed, and maintained with engineering and energy best practices in mind. Our NEBB-certified technicians are the eyes and ears in the field. As your new or remodel building projects develop, it is easy for HVAC testing, adjusting, balancing, and commissioning to be overlooked. With our customized solutions — there is no one size fits all when it comes to T&B — let us verify you are getting it right to ensure a healthy space for customers and employees.

WHEN IS A TEST & BALANCE NEEDED?

NEW CONSTRUCTION

Obtain your Certificate of Occupancy and know the HVAC system conforms with design specifications before it’s turned over to operations with a certified, independent air balance report.

EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT PROGRAMS

Execute a successful equipment replacement or “roof sweep” by having it tested and balanced so you get what was specified.

REMODEL PROJECTS

Changes in floor plans affect the airflow, and construction impacts indoor air quality. Have a TAB test performed to prevent any airflow deficiencies caused by construction.

REBALANCE

All mechanical systems fall out of alignment over time. Keep air quality, comfort and efficiency at peak performance by rebalancing the HVAC every three to five years.

COMFORT INVESTIGATIONS

Receive a thorough investigatory report of the HVAC conditions at a facility with comfort complaints or negative building pressure issues so corrective action can be determined.

UNIQUE AIR BALANCE PROGRAMS

We are happy to create a tailored scope of work for your specific needs.

MORE THAN T&B: OUR SERVICES

HVAC Test & Balance

HVAC Test & Balance

A test and balance (T&B or TAB) is the verification of a facility’s HVAC system to ensure it is operating per the engineered designed plans. A T&B is usually performed at the end of new construction or a remodel, but the service may also be performed on existing facilities to verify the HVAC system’s condition and operation.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is typically tested by using “SUMMA” canisters positioned throughout a facility. These canisters capture air to determine the concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs and CO2 can also be measured in a facility using installed sensors to ensure levels are kept below recommended levels.

Commissioning

Commissioning

Commissioning is the process to ensure that the systems in a facility have all been installed properly and are operating as designed. This most commonly involves the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems but may include the building management system (BMS) or any other items the customer would like verified.

Design Review

Design Review

The purpose of an HVAC design review is to help the project manager/engineer check for coordination between design disciplines. Melink can help to check for errors, omissions, and inconsistencies in the HVAC design before construction documents are finalized. This can save time, money, and frustration on a new build or remodel.

Installation Verification

Installation Verification

Installation verification is included in Melink’s scope of work for both test and balance service, as well as commissioning visits. A report will be issued noting all items that do not match the engineer’s designed plans. This report can then be given to the installation contractors to repair or replace all noted issues.

Performance Testing

Performance Testing

This is a type of on-site commissioning visit where the technician will either perform or witness testing to verify the functionality of the equipment being commissioned. This is reported out in a checklist of the various functional tests with a short description of actions that need to be taken to ensure functionality.

Asset Management

Asset Management

Melink issues reports after each site visit that document the technician’s findings while on site. Included in this report are detailed notes on the model and serial numbers of equipment with their condition. This info can be used by facility managers to remotely make decisions, without having to ever set foot on site to verify equipment.

Hydronic Balancing

Hydronic/Water Balancing

HVAC systems may utilize equipment that heats and cools the air through water that is either heated or chilled. This must be balanced in order to ensure proper heating and cooling is being delivered to the correct areas of the facility. Melink technicians are trained to perform hydronic/water balancing.
