09 Nov The Effects Of Roof Mounted Hvac Systems
There are many reasons for commercial roof mounted Hvac systems. It’s easy to forget about the potential dangers. These hazards can be easily mitigated, but it’s important to remember them so that the roof does not get damaged by HVAC units and those who maintain them. These are the consequences you need to avoid.
Foot Traffic Damage
Commercial roof mounted Hvac systems require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition. Technicians must be on the roof regularly. Foot traffic on commercial roofs can cause wear and tear. This could include premature granule loss cracking and tearing. Direct damage to the membrane is also possible.
Install walkway protection pads by a roofing contractor along the pathway that leads from the roof to the HVAC unit or any other rooftop equipment to prevent this. These protect the roof’s most vulnerable areas.
Damage From Improper Heating Unit Installation
Although roofs can be strong, proper installation of HVAC units is essential. A commercial roofer is recommended for the job to make sure that the materials used are compatible with your roof system. Also, to ensure compliance with local building codes, it is a good idea to have one present. It is much easier to prevent damage than to have it discovered later and need to be repaired.
HVAC Problems Causes Leaks
Water can pool at the base of roof mounted Hvac systems if it has any leaks. If water doesn’t drain quickly enough, it can pool at the base of some roofing systems. Your HVAC system should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis to prevent it from leaking.
