Beware of Formicary Corrosion

Beware of Formicary Corrosion

Beware of Formicary Corrosion

Heaters and air conditioning systems have become more effective and efficient as time goes on, which has become a great boon out here in Mesa, AZ. But that often creates new challenges and even new dangers which can cause your system no end of trouble. Among them is the recent rise in formicary corrosion, which strikes at the copper tubing in your heating and air conditioning system, and is responsible for trouble like refrigerant leaks and even the full-bore failure of the tubing. A good technician can correct the problems caused by formicary corrosion and help your indoor air quality to boot. Let’s take a look at how it all works.

The Causes

Formicary corrosion is caused by a mixture of oxygen and moisture in the air with formic acid, found in various household cleaning products as well as in nests of ants. We all know that ants are a recurring problem here in our neck of the woods, but even ant-free households can experience this issue as well. And the acid doesn’t need to be near your heater or air conditioning system. If it’s in the air, it will cycle through your home when you run your HVAC system, and in the process could damage the tubing.

The Solution

A good exterminator can get rid of the ants if you have any, but they invariably return, and that won’t correct the problem of formic acid in your home’s cleaning products. A more effective solution is to install an air cleaner and/or a UV air purifier in your home. It will alter the makeup of the air and prevent the chemical reaction that creates formicary corrosion from taking place, as well as improving your indoor air quality and contributing to the overall comfort of your home.

Contact John’s Refrigeration today to help prevent formicary corrosion in your HVAC system.
