We provide detailed information
We test all types of commercial equipment
Combustion testing on gas fired equipment. We can diagnose how efficient or non efficient the equipment is operating. We can also tell if it has a cracked heat exchanger.
TAB, Temperature, Airflow & Balancing test
Testing the airflow and temperatures in existing HVAC systems is critical. Unbalanced systems will not heat or cool efficiencently. The ductwork may not be sized correctly. And when we test gas fired equipment we also check if the heat exchanger is cracked.
We collect and record data for accuracy. 24/7 we collect data for temperatures and humidity. Then provide you with a report. Certain rooms not being heat or cooled properly? We also can provide data on on long the equipment ran for and how many amps it used.
Testing Static Pressure
We test buildings for pressures and also test the duct system for static pressures. This will tell us how much air flow is being wasted.
Sewer Line Inspection
We video the interior lining of sewer lines to check for roots, wall cracks and cave ins.
Building Pressure Testing
Some people do not understand why building pressure testing can help. If your office or building has a high negative pressure this means conditioned air is being pulled out wasting energy. It creates climate control issues with that area. Chemical storage rooms should have air being pulled out and exhausted to the exterior of the building. However if your building has a high negative pressure then the fumes from the chemical room are being pulled into the building.
Oregon and Idaho have high radon levels. If your home or business is subject to high levels of radon you are at risk. Radon causes health issues and cancer. I should know having had lung cancer. Living in a home exceeding the safe levels by 3X.
Levels above .4 is considered high. Building materials, paint, drywall, etc all have formaldehyde. However the USA has regulations to maintain safe levels on building materials. However many homes and businesses were built prior to these regulations were implemented.
We test large motors for heat, the killer of very expensive electrical motors. We utilize thermal imagery, vibration analysis, and amp probes. We look at bearings, shafts, windings, amp draws. In other words we give it a physical.
