Water Damage to HVAC?

What to do if your heating, ventilating and cooling system took on water after a natural disaster

Water Damage to Furnaces and Boilers

The gas valves and control panels in boilers, natural gas furnaces, and even space heaters are vulnerable to water damage from flooding. Corrosion begins inside those valves and controls and even if the outside of the device is clean and dry, corrosion may be building inside. This could do anything from make your unit less reliable, to starting a fire or explosion! If there is any question at all about whether water has reached a gas appliance, have an Aire Serv of Fort Bend professional check out the unit immediately.

Heat Pumps And Air Conditioning Systems

Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning systems are sealed systems and are more likely to remain intact after exposure to flood waters. However, if either the indoor or outdoor units of a split system has been repositioned by only a small amount, it is possible that your refrigerant system will have been breached. A breach of this nature would require a full system replacement, so a thorough inspection of the system is recommended.

Air Ducts

If your air ducts took on any water during a natural disaster, mold can easily build up. This causes serious health risks to you, your family, and even your pets. Allergies can be exacerbated allergens, the air quality can be poor, and even cause your home to smell. Your ducts may require cleaning to ensure the health of the occupants of the home.
