Solving Excessive Negative Building Pressure

Excessive negative building pressure occurs when HVAC systems in a building draw in more air than they expel. Some clues this may be an issue in a building include difficulty opening doors and keeping interior doors closed. Proper design and installation of HVAC systems is critical to minimizing challenges presented by excessive negative pressure issues but adjustments can also be made to HVAC systems in existing buildings to help balance pressure to solve issues that may be causing excess interior moisture entering buildings.
