3 Ways to Protect Your HVAC from Metal Corrosion

Corroded coilDo your customers live at the beach? If so, you know their A/C systems need a little extra TLC from all that salty air.

Over time, salty air can break down the oxide layer that protects parts of the A/C from disintegrating. Check out the photo above – those A/C coils are definitely corroded!

How can you fix corrosion and protect your customers A/C systems? Sea Coast Air Conditioning of Florida has three answers in “How the Beach Damages Your AC.”

One of the best ways is to put a protective layer back on the system.

Sea Coast suggests that “applying an anti-corrosion coating to your air conditioning system can help your AC withstand exposure to the ocean air.”

So what kind of coating do you need? Try a micro-coat that is specifically engineered for metal corrosion like Coil Shield. If you use it for your customers, you can keep their coils protected and clean for one year or more. You’ll see less corrosion and buildup, and the coating unobtrusively covers the coils.

Contractors: What do you use to protect your customers’ coils and A/C systems from corrosion? We all know coil cleaning is a must, but how important is coil protection to you and your customers?

Case In Point: Coil Shield…What is it and how does it work?

Coil Shield is a condenser coil spray applied annually, that provides a clear molecular coating of protection. Coil Shield significantly reduces coil corrosion under the most aggressive conditions.

Silver Dunes has been using our product since 2009 and we look forward to many more years of servicing them.

Product Spotlight: The Unseen, Often Ignored HVAC Problem that is Draining Your Wallet

During normal operation of an HVAC system, particles and contaminates enter through the air and build up on the coils. According to the Energy Star Maintenance Checklist, link.

“Dirty coils reduce the system’s ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.” Constant cleaning of coils by personnel is expensive and time-consuming, and often results in a trade off. Either more money must be spent on preventive maintenance, or more will be spent on energy costs and replacement. For this reason, having dirty HVAC coils is seen as unavoidable.

For treatment, there are numerous coil cleaners including non-acidic, non-caustic and foaming. While all clean coils at different levels of effectiveness, they are only momentarily effective. Once the system starts back up, buildup begins until the next cleaning. For this reason, an effective plan includes applying a preventive product that deters contaminate accumulation.

At CRT, we have developed the following products to protect HVAC systems from unnecessary buildup. By using our Micro Coat Product Line, both condensate and evaporator coils can remain clean and buildup free, prolonging the time between cleanings and saving both time and money.

First Strike Micro Coat
First Strike Micro Coat is an independently GREEN certified coating designed to protect against unnecessary labor and costs. First Strike Micro Coat reduces recurrent deposit buildup on HVAC evaporator coils by providing a clear molecular layer, or micro coating, of protection. Once cleaned, evaporator coils remain clean up to one year or more.

Coil Shield
Coil Shield is a coating designed to protect condenser coils from corrosion. In high salt and industrial areas, corrosive elements are pulled into HVAC condensers. This causes the system to run inefficiently, and eventually leads to condenser replacement. Coil Shield provides a clear molecular layer, or micro coating, of protection that lasts up to one year or more.
