Oregon Commercial Building & equipment testing will tell a story regarding many things thats going on inside of a business or home. We suggest having this done before any purchase.
We analyze and test fossil flue equipment for efficiency
We also provide a printed report after each test
HVAC Airflow Balancing & Temperature
We check the air flow from each supply duct & measure the temperature. Some supply ducts may have to much or to little air flow. We then test the return air flow. Once this is completed we test the building pressures to find out how high or low the pressures are.
Commercial Kitchen Equipment testing
We inspect commercial kitchen equipment and test to verify in good working condition.
Taking a building pressure test reading helps identify the positive or negative pressures in your building. By doing so helps in the diagnostic testing for air leakage “efficiency” and potential hazards of back drafting of gas fired equipment.
Utilizing a manometer will help us determine the air flow in air handlers.
Why is taking a building pressure reading important? By doing so we can determine high positive or negative pressures. We can also determine air leakage, duct leakage, back drafting issues of gas fired equipment or fireplaces.
Refrigeration Equipment inspections
We test walkin, reachin refrigeration equipment to verify temperatures.
Commercial oven testing
We test and inspect commercial gas ovens for proper working condition.
Being certified to operate a thermal camera is important. Most inspectors are not certified.
Taking amp draws on electrical equipment will tell us if your electrical device is near end of life, over drawing electrical current or if the equipment is within specifications.
Sewer line inspection
It has become common to have your sewer line between your home and city services inspected. By locating a break or deficiencies before purchasing a home or business may save you thousands of dollars later.
Sewer & Chimney scope Inspection
Chimney damage will cause fires. We utilize our digital scope to look for cracks or deficiencies in the chimney liner
We utilize thermal imaging for many different reasons. We can determine the heat load of the bearings and shaft on electrical motors.
We also look for roof leaks on large commercial buildings. Conditions have to me just right in order to locate these leaks.
We use electronic top of the line equipment to test radon. In 48 hours the test is complete.
Lead Paint Testing
We test indoor air for formaldehyde. Formaldehyde causes health concerns and even cancer.
By testing a buildings pressures we are able to determine which side of the duct system leaks than the other. We can determine if you are wasting energy. And we can tell if CO is being pulled back through the flues on gas fired equipment.
Volatile Organic Chemicals
Building Analyst Group Inc, conducts many types of testing for commercial buildings. Depending on the clients needs we can test and verify the operating condition of HVAC systems, duct systems, gas fired appliances and equipment, refrigeration equipment, electrical equipment, indoor air quality, lead contamination in soil, water and building materials, radon, formaldehyde, CO, CO2.
Our expertise in testing originated 30 years ago as a service technician. Many brokers, investors and property owners never realized this is something that can be implemented into the building inspection. Or they believe they would have to hire several companies to test for all the things we test for.
For decades we have commissioned buildings and equipment. Now its part of our services to our clients.
