If you’re like most homeowners, you didn’t buy a home in hopes of becoming an HVAC specialist, electrician, or water heater repairman. You want to live in your home, not be the specialist in charge of fixing everything. However, there are a few things you can learn to help yourself stay ahead of major repairs by responsibly maintaining your important systems, such as your water heater.
An aging office HVAC system can create a number of problems for the building owner and anyone using that space. Not only is it not properly cooling or heating the space, but it may be very inefficient, causing excessive costs just to run. If you feel your HVAC system is no longer efficient, or want to see what options are available to you, our team can help. A full inspection by the professionals at Smoak’s Comfort Control is the first step.
Homeownership comes with a lot of responsibilities. From water pipes and HVAC systems, your home has a lot of moving parts that require TLC from time to time. One of the most important systems to keep an eye on are the coils in your HVAC unit. Here’s a few reasons you should get them cleaned on a regular basis.
You’ve noticed that the air handler is leaking, now what? The first step you need to take is to turn the unit off, immediately. If water’s leaking out of the unit, that means water’s leaking within the unit, which = damage to the unit and damage to your home if it continues to run.
Electrical components with the unit could become damaged and your home could suffer water damage, which is not pretty, and not fun. Not only is water damage not pretty, and not fun, but it’s also costly to repair when things get really bad.
So what’s causing all of this water seepage? Within the air handler lays a world of air flow components and cooling components, the water leakage could be caused by any number of things.
