Hurricane season is upon us, and now is the time to ensure your air conditioning system is prepared for potential damage. A well-maintained AC unit is essential for protecting your home and keeping your family comfortable during a storm.
Here are some steps you can take to ensure your air conditioning system is ready for hurricane season:
1. Inspect the unit for any visible damage or wear and tear.
Look for loose or frayed wires, bent fins, and other damage signs. If you notice any issues, schedule an ac repair before a storm hits.
2. Check the outdoor unit for debris.
Make sure there are no leaves, branches, or other debris blocking the airflow to the unit. This can help prevent damage and ensure that the unit runs optimally.
3. Replace any old or damaged parts.
If your AC unit is more than 10 years old, some components may be worn out or outdated. Replacing them now can help prevent damage during a storm and improve the overall performance of your unit.
4. Secure the outdoor unit.
Ensure the unit is properly anchored to the ground to prevent it from being knocked over by strong winds. You can use straps, brackets, or other methods to keep the unit in place.
5. Consider a whole-home surge protector.
This device can help protect your AC unit (and other appliances) from power surges that can occur during a storm.
