6+ Ways Rust Can Damage Your HVAC System – And How to Avoid It

Rusty AC System

HVAC maintenance agreements can help protect you from a variety of heating and cooling problems. But did you know one of the top problems in HVAC maintenance is actually…rust?

While many people might think out of tune fans, blowers, or even clogged furnace filters as being the number one “problem” inside your home’s climate control system, the truth is moisture and corrosion can kill a system faster than just about anything.

Common Areas Where Rust Accumulates Inside HVAC Systems

Any place where water accumulates or has a chance to condense is fair game for rust and corrosion problems. This includes all of the following locations:

  1. Ductwork
  2. Drain pan
  3. Condenser coils
  4. Evaporator coils
  5. Compressors
  6. Fan blades
  7. …and more

The only good news is all of these rust-related problems have a single solution: regular maintenance.

How Maintenance Agreements Protect Your System from the Ravages of Rust

Through twice a year service visits, your technician will be able to spot the signs of rust-related problems early on. In addition to thoroughly inspecting and cleaning all the applicable parts of your unit, they can treat and prevent areas prone to rusting. Also, they can remedy any other problems that could be related to the corrosion (think: clogged drains, dirty coils, poor ventilation, and so forth).
