What Was Wrong With Our Customer’s System
This month we were out in Allen replacing a heat pump air handler. When we replace a system like this, one of the things we like to do is spray the exterior emergency drain pain with a flex seal material. This is like a rubber coating on top of the drain pan to prolong its life expectancy. Water sometimes gets on this drain pan, and if your primary drain is clogged water will flow out into your emergency drain pan. Often customers don’t know about this and the pan rusts. If it rusts through, it could be catastrophic. That’s why we like to add this extra layer of protection for you.
The Solution To Rust In Your HVAC System
That’s not the only place we find rust. When we replaced this air handler we found that the evaporator coil on the old unit was rusty. The ends of aluminum copper evaporators are steel, and steel tends to rust—much more than aluminum rusts. We replace these with all-aluminum coils; no copper, no steel, just aluminum. This will prevent rusting and lengthen the lifespan of your evaporator coil.
We will also replace our customer’s thermostat—in this case with a T6 Honeywell. This is a WiFi thermostat that will let them control the temperature of your house from Mexico or wherever they may travel to. They will also be able to control their heating and cooling schedule from their phone.
When Is It Time For an HVAC Replacement?
We do everything we can to repair rather than replace. Unfortunately, in this case, our customer was out of options and was having constant issues. They were tired of having problem after problem, so called us to replace their system. We promise that they will be thrilled with this system, and with how comfortable their house will be!
