Spring Showers and HVAC
We all know that April showers bring May flowers! However, they also bring something less desirable: rust, power outages, and other HVAC hazards. All these can seriously impact your air conditioner’s efficiency.
Let’s see how can you deal with the rainy spring season and prevent damage!
How To Protect HVAC Before a Rainstorm
1. Turn your AC unit or furnace off since the water collecting around them may find its way to the system causing irreparable damage.
2. If you own a window AC unit it’s a good idea to turn it off, unplug it and remove it from the window. This will protect your AC unit as well as prevent water from making its way into your home.
3. Clean dirt and derbies to prevent it from blowing inside your AC unit. You should also cover the unit.
How To Protect HVAC After a Rainstorm
Check your HVAC system and make sure it’s not sitting in water, check all the vents, loose screws, or any missing components.
Call your trusted HVAC technician to inspect the unit and your AC’s air quality. Make sure your HVAC system is ready for spring and summer so you can just relax and enjoy!
