Introducing Rheia Verify
Rheia Verify is a web-enabled app which walks a commissioning technician through the HVAC system verification and airflow balancing processes. The current methods to balance a home is something which is often neglected because it is time-consuming and inaccurate. Rheia had made the process simple and easy, rewarding the technician with time savings and fewer call-backs. Rheia requires homes to be balanced using the Verify app to be valid for our warranty.

Who and Why
A technician is responsible for setting the balancing dampers and inputting system data into the Verify app. Completing this process symbolizes the technician “Signing Off” an installed system, indicating that installation is as specified by the designer and that the HVAC system is performing within system and comfort limits.
Understanding the Verify App Process
Property Search – The property search screen locates the lot that needs to be balanced from a suggested list of homes. After filtering the list, the technician selects the community to locate the desired lot.
Selected Property Once a lot is selected, a summary screen showing basic information about the lot appears and is confirmed, and “Start Commission” is clicked.
Global Settings are set, which defines installed equipment and the pressurizing system. Once saved, the app allows for pressure and room measurements to be recorded.
Balancing recommendations are shown on the Verify app screen after all measurements are entered into the app and calculated. Balancing may require adjustments to damper positions, which can easily be achieved through guidance given by the app.
Once fully balanced, the system is tested once more and upon positive verification is considered commissioned and results are reported and saved in the cloud.
