Can The Salt Air Damage My Unit?

Monday, June 10th, 2013

Many people find the smell of salt air intoxicating and enjoy living along the coastal regions immensely. However, staying permanently in a place with salt air comes with a price. Salt air is very corrosive and rapidly degrades many types of metallic objects including barbecue grills, AC units, vehicles, metal doors, and an assortment of bathroom fixtures. The chloride ions present in the salt are responsible for corroding metal. These ions react with the thin metallic oxide layer that forms on top of most metallic objects and once this layer is gone, the metal underneath is left susceptible to all manner of substances.

If you live in a place with salt air, you will find that your AC unit corrodes pretty quickly, sometimes in as little as 3-5 years.

This means that any costs associated with corrosion damage cannot be compensated. Lucky for you, you can use a variety of chemical elements to protect your AC from the ravages of sea air. Here is how to go about applying these anti-corrosive substances: (more…)
