Clear Out Soot & Smoke From Your HVAC System
Wildfires can affect the performance of HVAC systems due to the after fall of contaminants in the air becoming clogged in HVAC air filters. This residue can affect the performance of your system if not cleared in a timely manner. Here at Air Flow Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning, we understand that in order for HVAC systems to run well, routine inspections and filter changes are necessary. Typically you should have your filter changed every 1-3 months, with smoke in the air it’s recommended for monthly filter changes. After a wildfire, immediate check-ups should be scheduled by a professional technician. To get set up with an HVAC wildfire check-up in Red Bluff, CA, contact your local professionals.

The Effects of Wildfire on Your AC System
Excessive smoke and ash caused by our current wildfires can coat the surfaces of your HVAC system. Smoke residue, ash, soot, and other contaminants can disrupt your system capacity, efficiency, and electrical components causing premature failure and higher utility costs.
A comprehensive inspection and evaluation of your HVAC system following a wildfire can determine the extent of the HVAC system restoration and the services most ideal for your system to operate at peak performance. An HVAC wildfire check-up in Red Bluff, CA is ideal to have.
One of the biggest issues we are currently finding with failing systems is the necessity of an outdoor condenser coil cleaning to remove the ash and soot currently in the air. If 1/100th of an inch of dirt or ash accumulates on your air conditioner’s condenser coil, efficiency will decline by as much as 5%. That percentage increases as the contamination build up!
