Air Treatment Inc - Will Regular Maintenance Prevent Corrosion in My HVAC System

Regular service and maintenance agreements are a great option for many homeowners. You can simply sit back and let the experts do all the work…including calling to remind you to schedule your appointment!

But here’s something you might not know: these appointments also ensure your HVAC system doesn’t suffer from the detrimental effects of corrosion.

Controlling HVAC Corrosion in 3 Simple Steps

While it’s possible to use chemical treatments, or water filtration designed to alter the pH, the easiest (and cheapest) way to solve the problem is as follows:

  1. Clean the system. Oils, hard water scale, and other deposits all contribute to corrosion problems. A good cleaning gives you a fresh palette.
  2. Pretreat the cleaned areas. Depending on how it’s cleaned, your system may become more susceptible to corrosive attack. To prevent this, a layer of pretreatment chemicals is applied to protect the system’s metals.
  3. Use chemical treatment. This final layer is the protective guard against corrosion between your system’s maintenance appointments. It creates a barrier preventing many corrosion contributors from adhering to the metal. However, it’s worth noting the treatment is not a permanent solution; you’ll need cleaning and reapplication once or twice a year depending on the pH and quality of the water in your area.
