HVAC/Utility Pad Leveling
An uneven utility pad can create a world of problems for you as a homeowner or business owner. Essentially, utility pads are designed for your HVAC, electrical, or plumbing units to rest upon. If the pad is uneven, a strain can be created upon electrical or plumbing connections. Plus, water can pool in that area, and eventually make its way into your basement.
Your HVAC service technician can fix just about anything that might go wrong with your air conditioner, but there is one problem he cannot solve. A sinking HVAC utility slab will need to be fixed by someone else, someone who holds the knowledge and skills of concrete leveling in Nashville.
Dangers of a Sinking Utility Pad
You see, moist conditions and dry spells play a big part in destabilizing the soil. The mineral content under your AC pad expands and contracts and the weight of the air conditioning unit contributes to the sinking and shifting. A pad that has as little as a 10-degree tilt can put stress on the electrical and plumbing components of your air conditioning unit. Even just a slight settling under the HVAC pad is enough to throw y9ur AC unit off balance and shorten its mechanical life.
