We all know mice love to chew through electrical wiring and can cause serious damage to our air conditioners. This can reduce the efficiency of the system. That’s why preventive maintenance checks for home ventilation systems are important. Here’s a video that shows preventive AC maintenance tips to prevent mice infestation.
The air conditioning system’s insulation attracts mice because it’s warm and great for nesting.
Mice and other rodents can access your AC system through holes, air vents, and cable entries. When doing AC preventive maintenance, a professional will inspect the unit for any signs of mice. Afterward, they will open the unit and seal off any open holes and vents using sealing compounds to prevent mice from moving in. They can also use special AC coverings to cover openings and air vents. Most importantly, routine cleaning and servicing of the AC unit will ensure efficiency and best performance.
If left unattended, mice can cause serious problems, such as structural damage to your HVAC system. Mice can even pose a health risk to your family. Having regular preventative maintenance done can save you from costly repairs.
