How Can Homeowners Prevent HVAC Water Intrusions?

SERVPRO helps Mary Esther Homeowners keep their HVAC systems maintained for Improved Indoor Air Quality.

HVAC Maintenance for Fall and Winter Can Help Prevent Damage in Mary Esther.

Keeping your HVAC system well maintained not only means it runs more efficiently but can prevent leaking and overflowing from condensation. The last thing you need is for your heating system to go out in the middle of winter due to a malfunction. A leak can cause that to happen and bring with it moisture problems to your Mary Esther residence, requiring the need for SERVPRO to intervene. 

What Should Homeowners Do to Maintain Their HVAC System?

You can prepare for fall and winter weather with some basic maintenance tips. While you may not be able to totally avoid the need for water damage repair in your Mary Esther home, you can do your part. 

  • Air Filters – these should be changed every three months, even if you think they do not need replacing.
  • Vents – clean them when you replace the air filters.
  • Inspections – schedule regular inspections with a professional contractor. Spring and fall will be the perfect time to do this.
  • Upgrade – if your HVAC system is more than ten years old, consider upgrading to a newer, more efficient model.
  • Programmable Thermostat – This enables you to control the temperatures throughout the day and night. 
  • Insulation – Lighten your HVAC’s load by insulating your attic. 

Keeping your air ducts clean and making sure drainage pans and hoses are working correctly can prevent water damage. SERVPRO can inspect your HVAC system for problems in these areas. We also offer routine cleaning for air ducts that can improve air quality.

If you do experience water spills due to a problem with your HVAC system, SERVPRO can mitigate the damage. We provide water damage repair services to residences throughout the area. Our technicians are well-trained and use advanced technology to mitigate all kinds of water intrusions.
