Preparing Your HVAC during Hurricanes and Stormy Weather

The spring and summer months can bring a lot of rainy, windy weather in the Southeast region.  When these natural weather disasters occur, they can wreak havoc on your HVAC equipment and cause long-term problems.
Here are a few preventative measures you can take to protect your HVAC unit from damage during hurricanes and stormy weather conditions. 

Get an HVAC Inspection

Start taking preventive steps before the hurricane season sets in by carrying out a comprehensive checkup of the HVAC system.  An HVAC technician will inspect your system and recommend any additional measures to take in preparation.

Install a Surge Protector

Minimize any inconveniences and severe damage during lightning storms by installing a home surge protector to shield your sensitive HVAC components and other electrical equipment.

Turn The Unit Off

As a storm approaches, make sure to turn off all the appliances in your home, including the HVAC system.
