Commercial Rooftop HVAC Water Leaking Problems – Part 2

November 5, 2012

It`s Monday and We already discussed some part of hvac commercial leaking problems. Now let`s get back to further leaking causes. Common error during installation becomes reason of improper flashing. Although all platforms are horizontal and covered with a metal cap overlap the whole roofing material. Neglecting that part will allow water to seep under the roofing material. If that so, then try not to expose the ductwork. It is one of the in efficient energy practice and hard to keep water tight. Water can travel down to the ductwork through air supply ducts when seeps in through the seams.

Sometimes it’s hard to expose the travelling path of water. Air conditioning units are beneath the platform cap. An average ten ton unit can weigh approximately 10,000 pounds. You can`t raised the unit to figure out the source of problem if any area is effected by rust or drain pan, erosion of cap. The most affordable solution is to expedite the repair of unit. Cost of new unit is often high. Roofers and cheap HVAC technicians love to play the blame game when it comes to drain pan leak of commercial roof problems so always trust on experienced and certified heating systems technicians.
