Why You Should Protect Your HVAC with the Old Coast Corrosion Package

Who doesn’t want a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that works year-round with no problems in their home? Unfortunately, unless you take proper care of your system and take steps to be sure it’s completely protected from various chemical compounds, including salt from seawater, you risk damaging it—and letting your Georgia or South Carolina home go without an efficient or properly functioning HVAC system.

At Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning, we strive to provide high-quality products, including specially formulated coatings designed to keep all components of your heating and cooling system in top shape.

HVAC Damage From Corrosion

It’s important for your HVAC system to have the proper protection to prevent premature deterioration due to corrosion. If your HVAC system doesn’t have a protective coating or layer of an anticorrosion product applied, your system could be negatively impacted by saltwater damage.

If you live by the sea, you may already know salt particles from the water can travel through the air. This can rust your HVAC system or affect it in more serious ways, resulting in the need for repairs or replacement. The damage is due to the salt, which impacts various types of metals like aluminum, copper, and steel—the materials possibly composing your HVAC system.

If the salt deposits also find their way to the inside of your system, damage could result in malfunctions or even a complete breakdown. Some common signs of HVAC damage include inefficient performance, freezing or broken parts, lack of sufficient airflow, abnormal sounds, and leaks.

Corrosion could impact your heating and cooling system even if you don’t live right next to the ocean. According to a study published by the Advanced Geophysical Union (AGU), a nonprofit organization of Earth, atmospheric, ocean, hydrologic, space, and planetary scientists, sea spray from surf zones can travel at least 25 km

Whether you do live near the ocean or close enough to where salt particles can reach your Savannah or Hilton Head home, it’s critical you have corrosion protection in place to prolong the life of your HVAC system.
