Air Conditioning Hurricane Prep

Posted on AC Tips, Air Conditioning South Florida August 27, 2015 by

Are you ready for hurricane season? We definitely can’t control the weather but we can take control and prepare our homes and businesses from the hazards of these terrible storms. Taking some time to prepare your mechanical systems before a hurricane, it will be worth it in the long run. Take a closer look at how you can prepare your home’s/business’s air conditioning unit before a hurricane below:

  1. Turn off your air conditioner
  2. If you have window air conditioner units or discharge ducts that exhaust through a window or to the exterior, remove the unit/ducts and completely seal the opening
  3. Cover your outdoor air conditioning units or condensing units with a tarp or plywood to protect from flying debris
  4. Secure outdoor air conditioning units with hurricane straps to protect from high winds
  5. Once storm passes, inspect your air conditioning unit before turning it on. You may need to contact your HVAC specialist to make certain your unit is safe to turn on and operate
