Testing, Balancing, and Reporting

California Building Codes

The California Energy Commission (CEC) outlines energy efficiency standards for new and altered buildings in California through Title 20 and Title 24. Mechanical Building Codes state “All systems shall be tested by a certified independent agency… (to) provide a certified Air Balance Report for review prior to final inspection.” Balancing systems is completed in two phases during the project: at rough and at final.

About the Process

First, technicians must make a visit to perform on-site testing. Then, they will let you know upfront whether the system passed or failed. If the system did not pass, they will advise you on how to remedy the issue. Once all systems meet the stipulated requirements for Air Balance, they will produce a Report. Lastly, this Report can be turned into the correct building authorities.
