No Sweat. Preparing For The Summer Heat

A few simple repairs or additions to your current system can significantly affect your comfort and the bottom line for your commercial or residential property. Let’s take a look at a few game-changers:

Few things can elevate your mood quite like a warm spring day. While we would love to enjoy months of perfect 75-degree days, there’s no denying that uncomfortably hot temperatures are just around the corner. We can’t control the weather, but you can stay comfortable all summer with a few accessories to your HVAC system. What is that old saying? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is easier to prevent something from happening than to repair the damage after it has happened. It seems easy enough, but what if you’re unsure what prevention looks like when it comes to your HVAC system? 

Proper airflow throughout the space makes maintaining a consistent and comfortable temperature possible. The right Plenums create a uniform air distribution from the central unit, creating adequate airflow to each part of the home or building. You won’t be freezing in one room and overheating in the next. You can boost energy efficiency by replacing your plenum with a higher R-value and ensuring it is effectively sealed.

Our drain pans are mandated by code and serve as emergency or secondary drainage solutions. Positioned beneath the coil, they act as a safeguard in case the primary pan within the unit malfunctions. While the primary pan gathers routine condensation, ours offers additional protection for the home. MDM pans are constructed from durable 22-gauge steel with welded seams and galvanized steel fittings for drain connections. It’s essential to consider the reasons for replacing a drain pan. Rust and corrosion can lead to leaks, which cause mold and structural damage. To mitigate these risks, proper installation is crucial, ensuring the drain is adequately angled to prevent water from pooling in the pan. For added protection, drain pan tabs can help prevent clogs in the drainage system. Drain pans require annual inspection to ensure they are in optimal condition.  

Speaking of that ounce of prevention, filters, and Filter Housings might be the unsung hero of the HVAC world. Filters ensure that the air passing through the system is properly filtered before circulating throughout the home or building. Removing dust, pollen, mold spores, and other airborne particles improves the quality of the air you breathe and protects the HVAC equipment from damage caused by debris accumulation. Filter housings make it easier to replace and maintain filters, prolonging the life of the HVAC system and optimizing its performance.  Greater protection is achieved with thicker filters; the more dense the filter, the more optimal the protection. MDM produces Filter Housings for horizontal, downflow, counter flow, media air, and platform applications. 

Bottom Line:

Investing in cost-effective accessories will enhance comfort and provide that “ounce of prevention” to safeguard your property from potential damage and costly repairs. Besides, we know you have more exciting plans for your summer than repairing your HVAC system!
