It’s not uncommon for water from heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to damage commercial and residential properties. In fact, it’s one of the most common non-weather-related sources of water damage.
Having your unit inspected regularly can aid in prolonging the life of your system, and preventing small leaks from turning into bigger headaches. Checking for leaks should be part of your regular maintenance routine. In fact, it’s estimated that 10% of all properties have leaks that waste over 90 gallons or more per day.
Inspect and Identify Possible Leaks
The first step to preventing water damage from your HVAC system is looking to see if you have a problem in the first place. Issues may not be easily noticeable, even if doing a home inspection with the help of using the unit’s manual book. Consider securing a professional inspection annually to make sure the system is in good working order.
Prevent leaks by keeping your system in good working order to prevent failure. Make sure to service your system regularly, including these periodic maintenance tasks:
- Change Air Filter
- Clean Condenser
- Maintain Condensation Drain Line
