How to Tell If You Need an Make–Up Air System

Making sure that you have even pressure inside your building is a huge priority. If you’ve started to notice that there are some doors in your building that are difficult to open, it could mean that your building has negative pressure. If you’ve seen an increase in your utility bill without any corresponding increase in usage, it could be that your building has positive pressure.

What is Negative Pressure?

If your business has negative pressure, there is too little air in the building. Therefore, the building attempts to pull air in from any available spots. This is often caused by the HVAC system pushing too much air out of the building without replacing it with new, fresh air. Doors that are hard to open are the most common symptom of negative pressure. The vacuum of pressure on the inside of the building holds the door shut. Also, because your building is looking for any way to pull in fresh air, it can pull it from undesirable locations like the vents near the trash cans.

What is Positive Pressure?

When your building has positive pressure, your HVAC system has pushed too much air into the building. Doors that open suddenly are the primary symptom. Beyond this inconvenience and potential hazard, positive pressure can also put added strain on your HVAC system because it has to work harder to send more air into your building.

Make–up air systems are an essential part of any business’ HVAC system. In order to keep a good balance of pressure in your home, your building needs to be able to replace the air that your HVAC pushes in or pushes out. The make–up air system is there to allow your building to replace the air going in and going out of your building safely.
