What’s positive air pressure, and why is it important?

Positive air pressure allows for proper operation of your mechanical systems, such as gas-fired or vented appliances. It prevents the presence of carbon monoxide, helps contain odours and decreases the risk of fire spreading throughout your building.

Air make up units are needed where large volumes of air are being exhausted. Supply healthy air to people indoors where they live, work and play. Typical applications include: multi-residential buildings, hospitals, schools, manufacturing facilities, restaurants, office buildings and shopping malls.

Are you seeing common signs of negative pressure in your building? They include:

  • Doors being hard to open
  • Stale air within the space

Our technicians and Energy Management Consultants are experienced in identifying and correcting negative air pressures. We’ll customize an air make up unit to match the volume of air that is exhausted from your building. With properly-sized equipment and regular maintenance, Enercare will keep your equipment running at optimal efficiency.
