  • Heat Exchanger Painting

    I was just thinking.... (danger alert)

    Could painting a heat exchanger in some HVAC heat systems prolong the life of the exchanger? High heat paint?

    Thanks.

    I guess as long as the paint didn't offgas when heated it could be ok. The high heat paint i've seen is used for bbq grills, so they get used outside where offgassing isn't an issue.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        Why would you want to paint it, with the life time warranties these companies are offering today?

            I imagine that the paint used for mufflers on cars would work. I am not sure if that is the same paint used on BBQ grills or not though. I know the muffler paint is designed to get really hot and not have any adverse reactions as far as offgas.
