HVAC Corrosion Protection in Coastal Environments

Air-Conditioning Equipment Corrosion Protection in Coastal Areas: A Tailored Approach for Longevity

Living near the sea, while picturesque, presents unique challenges for homeowners, particularly when it comes to maintaining air conditioning and hydronic heat pump equipment. The corrosive nature of the salty air can significantly reduce the lifespan and efficiency of HVAC systems. This is a widespread issue across coastal regions, including the Mornington Peninsula. However, a solution exists in the form of Blygold’s specialised coatings, specifically designed to protect against such environmental stressors.

iEnergi’s Expertise in Protection Level Specification

The specification of the correct level of protection is crucial, and this is where the expertise of iEnergi comes into play. Understanding the local climate and environmental conditions is key to determining the appropriate level of corrosion protection. iEnergi’s knowledge in this field ensures that your HVAC system receives the necessary protection, perfectly balancing durability with efficiency.

How can I protect my Air conditioner from Corrosion?

Blygold’s flagship product, PoluAI XT, is a testament to innovation in the field of HVAC protection. This aluminum-pigmented polyurethane coating is tailored for air-cooled heat exchangers, providing effective protection against corrosion without compromising the system’s efficiency. This makes it an ideal solution for homes in coastal areas, from those near the calmer waters of Port Phillip Bay to residences facing the harsher ocean sprays.

Costing and Protection Levels

The cost of Blygold protection varies, ranging from $1,000 to $3,200, depending on the level of protection required. For instance, the Standard Protection, priced at $1,470 per unit, is suitable for homes in areas with moderate salinity, such as a street back from Port Phillip Bay. On the other hand, the Maximum Protection, approximately $3,200 per unit, is recommended for homes directly facing the ocean. This comprehensive option includes additional safeguards, but it’s important to note that it might result in a slight reduction in the system’s output efficiency.
