Why balancing is important?

by | Mar 15, 2021 | Latest News, Maintenance Advice

Balancing your system is relatively simple but often neglected process during the installation and commissioning of domestic heating systems. It is not mandatory but is considered best practice.

Balancing Weights

Correct balancing is a great way of ensuring your heating system works correct and efficiently. Balancing ensures that water flows equally to individual radiators and prevents cold or hot spots emerging (or loss of heating entirely). The efficiency of an unbalanced system is drastically reduced, increasing energy usage and bills.

Balancing includes:

  • Ensuring all radiators adequately heat up regardless of load.
  • Ensuring no radiators are over/under heating.
  • Stable flow and temperatures regardless of load.
  • Reducing noise levels
  • Saving energy.
  • Stable accurate room temperature.
