The HVAC testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB) report is a crucial part of installing a new commercial HVAC system, and is extremely useful to property owners and managers alike. As one of the top air conditioning companies in the area, All Seasons Inc. discusses the various elements of an HVAC TAB report and their importance.
The TAB report must be well-presented and easy to understand. An executive summary, general remarks, distribution list and table of contents are necessary. Symbols and abbreviations, corresponding mechanical drawings and certification must also be present.
There are many very capable technicians who operate without certification. A certification, however, ensures that those who work on the project have been thoroughly tested and vetted. Finally, it provides recourse for the end user to address issues with the report or the work done by the TAB contractors. All Seasons Inc. is one of the most reputable furnace companies with NATE-certified technicians.
Remarks and Deficiencies
The report should have both an executive summary and general remarks section in the front, and must also explain general conditions and issues. An itemized list of corrections, including pictures of deficiencies, should follow the summary. The general remarks should explain the scope of work and conditions at testing, though sometimes corrections are made during the course of the test and balance work,
Design Values vs. Actual Data
Reviewing a TAB report can be confusing and tedious. Still, anyone can determine if an item is not within +/- 20%, 10% (or in some cases 5%) of the design. A remark explaining why, as well as any corrective action needed, should follow such items. This part of the report should stand out even to the layman without being too technical or confusing.
