Bad dog!

Dog urine damage

Did you know?

Do you have a dog?  How about a male dog that likes to mark his territory? If you do you might want to find out if bowser considers your Heat Pump a part of his territory.  A dogs’ urine will dissolve the aluminum fins of your Heat Pumps outdoor coil and even cause the copper pipes inside to corrode and start leaking refrigerant.  That’s not good, it’s not covered under your warranty, and it’s more expensive to repair than to just to replace the heat pump or air conditioner.

What can you do?  Besides getting rid of man’s best friend, you would need to construct a barrier that keeps fido away from the corner of your heat pump.  A couple metal fence posts and some field fencing would work, but you can see from the picture that not doing something is not the answer.
