The accurate test and balance of a building insures that the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems are performing at the design intent and operating at an optimum level of performance.





Fluid Balance International is TABB (Testing, Adjusting and Balancing Bureau) certified. TABB is an international certification program for technicians, supervisors and contractors engaged in testing, adjusting, and balancing of all building environmental systems. TABB maintains its high standards through continuing education, certification testing, instituting new programs based on the public's environmental needs, and requiring its certified professionals to regularly upgrade their skill level to meet cutting edge technological advances in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry.

Engineers and architects may specify TABB in their projects because they are assured of value added experience and training which translates into projects completed correctly, safely and on-time. TABB can guarantee customer satisfaction because of their stringent certification and testing processes.


Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is one of the newest focuses of TABB. TABB is striving to discover new and improved methods of obtaining IAQ. Currently, there are three basic strategies to improve indoor air quality, even though each IAQ situation is different and requires its own tailor made solutions:

  • Control Pollutants at the source
  • Dilution / Removal (I.E., improve ventilation)
  • Treatment of the Air (I.E., filtration)

Assess and assist on a project from building design through construction and occupancy to ensure the efficient performance of facilities, systems and assemblies. Tests are performed on the mechanical systems to measure energy output and efficiency.
  • Benefits of Commissioning:
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Improved air quality
  • Reduced operation and maintenance costs
  • Improved building system control

A work area in which the air quality, temperature and humidity are highly regulated in order to protect sensitive equipment from contamination. Clean rooms are important features in the production of silicon chips, hard disk drives and other technologies such as satellites. The air in a clean room is repeatedly filtered to remove dust particles and other impurities that can damage the production of highly sensitive technologies.

Depending upon the use of the cleanroom, testing and certification is usually performed at initial installation and at specified intervals. In the medical field, certification is performed semi-annually or annually. Electronics firms may have independent testing initially and whenever problems occur. But they are typically monitoring their rooms daily with in-house personnel.

Certification of bio hoods.

HVAC inspection and performance evaluation. Purpose is to identify sources of energy inefficiencies and advise low cost/no cost solutions.
