Encinitas, CA is a lovely Pacific beach town with a gorgeous mild climate, strong sunshine, a relaxing and beautiful natural environment, and cool ocean breezes. What most Encinitas homeowners don’t realize is those soft ocean breezes carry a fine mist of saltwater that can wreak havoc on your HVAC system.

Saltwater is corrosive to metal, making it deteriorate at a rate up to 10 times faster than in inland locations. Heating and cooling systems are made almost entirely of metal. While the degradation of the metal is inevitable, getting regular furnace maintenance and cleaning can help slow the pace of corrosion. Heating maintenance entails the opening and inspection of your furnace’s working parts. Your HVAC technician will go through a comprehensive checklist to ensure we spot small problems and fix them to prevent what could become a system-wide failure.
