What To Know About Flooding and Your HVAC
- Fahrhall, Flooding, floods, Home Comfort, HVAC Tips, Windsor
With the recent flooding in Windsor, many Canadians are stuck wondering what to do in case of flooding around their HVAC system. We invest in our HVAC systems and rely on them every day, so it’s no wonder that we stress significantly when there is potential for damage. A home exposed to standing water can see damage to the furnace, air conditioner, boiler, and ventilation, so if the unfortunate does happen, this is what you need to know.
What Water Does To Your System
When exposed to water from flooding, an HVAC system can be severely (and possibly irreparably) damaged. Water can get into the system and create dangerous corrosion in the internal pipes, and possibly shorten the electrical components of the unit. Corrosion can damage the whole system, leading it to malfunction or breakdown, and electrical issues can be a hazard to your home and your personal safety.
Replace Don’t Repair
Although it can be frustrating to invest in a new furnace or boiler, it’s vital that if your HVAC system has significant water damage from flooding that you call in experts to assess and replace it. It is never recommended for homeowners to attempt to repair the system on their own, flooded HVAC equipment should always be properly handled and replaced by qualified HVAC technicians. Take this damage as an opportunity to replace your older HVAC system with a more energy-efficient model that will save you money on energy bills monthly.
Having to replace your HVAC system due to water damage from flooding can be stressful, that’s why it’s best to trust the experts to take care of replacing the system for you. Fahrhall’s expert technicians can help every step of the way from choosing the right system for your home to experty installing your brand new unit.
