Preparing Your HVAC for Stormy Weather

Stormy weather can wreak havoc with your home’s HVAC system, and if you’re searching for “AC repair near me in Ravenswood,” you can rely on American Home Heating & Air Conditioning to provide the very best in repair services.

At the same time, we want to help you take care of your system, and here are four tips to help protect your HVAC against summer storms.

  1. Protect your outside unit – Make sure that things like lawn furniture and tools are either secured or put away to prevent them from being blown around and damaging the unit, and get a cover to protect against heavy rain and hail.
  2. Install a surge protector – Lighting can severely damage your electronic equipment, and installing a surge protector will ground lighting if it hits your house.
  3. Turn the system off – For added protection during a severe storm, it’s a good idea to turn the system off and unplug your computer and other electronics.
  4. Get regular inspections – Regular professional inspection of your HVAC can also help protect it from heavy storms. If there’s a problem with your system, even small storms could make the problem even worse. Inspections will catch the problems early and keep your system running efficiently.
