Tips to Prevent HVAC Fires

In both summer and winter seasons, HVAC systems continue to work harder and longer to provide comfort in our properties. This system takes care of us in many ways, but we tend to neglect the life of an HVAC system. These equipment are used in high frequency but rarely maintained the way they are supposed to.

 

So the best way to not overtax the HVAC systems is to do regular maintenance. Routine maintenance is not only necessary to keep your system working efficiently, but also lets you catch any worn out or bad electrical connections early that may be a fire hazard. A higher demand on the HVAC system can quickly burn an old electrical connection and trigger a fire. When the ducts are not properly cleaned, these contaminants can quickly catch fire and exponentially cause damages throughout the entire facility.

 

Checking for any signs of leaks in the duct system can ensure you that the system is running efficiently. Signs of any water damage leak, or worse a fuel leak is a red flag to get the professionals to inspect quickly. Fuel leaks are highly flammable and may come in contact with any HVAC hot components triggering a fire.

 

Keeping the ducts clean of any dirt buildups in the vents and coils will help the system last longer and save you in the long run. Contaminants can clog the vents, obstructing any airflow causing unnecessary strain if not cleaned properly. This can cause overheating which leads to hire hazards.
