If you measured static pressure on every system you encountered, you would find more airflow problems than you could possibly correct. With all this opportunity, shouldn’t more HVAC professionals take advantage of this valuable reading?
To make static pressure readings useful, you’ll need a system to help you record and interpret the data and then diagnose the system to prescribe the necessary improvements. Believe it or not, your family doctor provides the perfect example of how to put a system like this in place for your company.
A simple method National Comfort Institute Inc. (NCI) teaches to explain static pressure is a blood pressure analogy. Everyone who visits the doctor gets their blood pressures taken. Everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have a stuffy nose or a broken leg, your blood pressure is taken; it isn’t an option.
