Common Questions Regarding Reports:

What Makes An Air Balance Report Certified?

For an air balance report to be labeled as “certified” it needs to be issued by a company that is legally licensed to perform “commercial air balancing.”

Only a company that possesses either a D-62 (water and air balancing) contractor’s license or an NCI Commercial Air Balancing Certification may legally issue an air balance report that is requested by the city. The company must not be affiliated with the mechanical project needing a test and balance report.

The T.A.B firm cannot be the building owner, GC, or sub-contractor that performed the mechanical work.

Vortex Air Balance Co. has both the D-62 License as well as the NCI Certification, both of which, are renewed promptly every two years.
