Before a hurricane.
Before a hurricane hits, make sure that your air conditioning unit is shut off. This prevents severe damage to your HVAC equipment due to erratic power interruptions.
When the power gets interrupted, it puts pressure on your compressor and other components of your heating and cooling unit.
If you leave your AC on during a hurricane, you might need to replace or repair it if it gets damaged, regardless of whether it’s new or not.
During a hurricane.
Make sure to watch out for lightning in this situation.
Lightning can cause power surges that will damage your HVAC system and other appliances. Some of these damages include burnt wires, blown fuses, burnt capacitors and fried compressors.
If you think you have a damaged HVAC unit, make sure that your unit is inspected by your local HVAC contractor.
After a hurricane.
Once the weather calms down, turn your AC unit on immediately to prevent mold and bacteria from forming in your ducts.
However, if you think it’s been compromised, make sure that your unit is checked by a professional so that they can assess its true condition.
