NEBBinar: A TAB Professionals Wishlist

The purpose of Testing, Adjusting and Balancing is to ensure that the Building HVAC system is working at optimum performance and providing total occupant comfort. Good TAB is much more than adjusting dampers – it is timely quality control and a complete system check out. TAB should be conducted either when a building project is completed or after it has been renovated.
Symptoms of an improperly balanced building include occupant complaints, poor indoor air quality and high energy bills. If you are having problems with your building, it is likely that you never had a proper TAB by a competent and qualified professional. Presenters will provide insight into what a TAB Professional needs to properly Test, Adjust, and Balance the HVAC system in your building. Presenters will discuss:
• The role of TAB in building performance
• Installation issues
• Equipment concerns
• Design concerns
• And more…
NEBB held a webcast on "A TAB Professionals Wish List" on October 23, 2013 and March 27, 2014. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the key components of a TAB project, common issues associated with buildings that are not balanced, and how to select a qualified TAB professional.
