Airflow balancing refers to the process of adjusting and optimizing the airflow within a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system or a building’s ventilation system. This task involves precise measurements to maintain comfort and indoor air quality.
With the CWa (Connected Workflow application) for Balancer, HVAC workers have a simple and easy to follow workflow to measure and fine-tune the flow of air to achieve maximum comfort.
Measuring airflow can be an extremely tedious task, that involves constantly moving from room to room, as different zones may require different needs. Environmental factors also affect how these zones are adjusted, such as weather and seasonal conditions that can change at any given time. Different components that are all interconnected also require adjusting together to achieve the desired outcome. These include fans, dampers, registers, and diffusers.
Designing the App
There are other modules within CWa that include similar layouts, as well as sharing assets and patterns from the design system. The acceptance criteria was a constantly evolving challenge, which involved adding features that were recommended from the product owners.
What I learned:
Going into this project, I had absolutely no idea what airflow balancing was, and had never even heard of it. Thankfully, my project manager was amazing at explaining the background and the majority of the workflow.
I also learned how complicated things can become once more and more features are added, especially when adding the “unhappy” paths that a user may run into while using the app.
This was probably one of my favorite projects I worked on, and the most in depth. Even though there were requirements constantly being added, there was rarely a need for too many questions to ask because of the thoroughness of my PM in her explanations in team meetings.
