Preventive Maintenance of the HVAC System in Raleigh Homes Can Avoid Water Damage Incidents

An HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is essential to Raleigh homes. Most homeowners make sure their HVAC runs efficiently, particularly during hot summer months when power bills can sky-rocket. Many do not realize that leaking and condensation can cause moisture to increase and be the culprit behind water damage in your home. When these types of damages occur, it is important to call a professional water restoration team for assessment and next steps.

In Raleigh, water damage assessments and remediation steps are possible thanks to SERVPRO. Our certified technicians arrive to your home with state-of-the-art equipment and the latest water damage restoration techniques. When we are inspecting your home, we look at the source of the problem and adjacent areas to determine whether walls are compromised or mold growth is present. Hygrometers, thermal imaging, and probes help us detect excess humidity within walls and under cabinets to complete a full picture of the water damage in your residence.

  • Even though water extraction, drying, and water damage restoration are commonplace, homeowners can take a few steps to prevent it. Those actions include-
  • Switching out your air filters in your HVAC unit as recommended by the manufacturer
  • Make sure vents are clean and insulation is sufficient.
  • Replace your unit to improve efficiency
  • Control the temperature of your home through the day and be mindful of outside temperature
