Matt, How Often Should Static Pressure Be Checked?
In this edition of "HVAC Skill Builder," Matt discusses how often static pressure should be checked.
Q: How Often Should Static Pressure Be Checked? A: Static pressure should be checked on every single call so if you're in the habit of drilling in the static pressure ports where they belong and checking static pressure, this is going to save the technicians a lot of time when doing maintenance calls or going back on service calls to be able to easily check that static pressure and being able to check the static pressure and also document in the customer's file was also one way to help you diagnose any potential issues down the road if you see the static pressure rising or having other issues, So again, you need to make sure that you check it on every single call it's no different than going to the doctor and with them having or have your blood pressure checked so consider it like the blood pressure of the system and again, please check it on every single call.
