Hurricane Preparation

When the threat of a hurricane presents itself, there are certain general precautions we should take to protect our home and families, such as stocking up on water, non-perishable foods, flashlights, batteries, and boarding up windows.

Precautions to Take

To keep your HVAC equipment as safe as possible during the storm, it’s recommended that you:

  • Turn off the HVAC unit, both at the thermostat and circuit breaker. This will reduce the chances of a power surge that could potentially compromise the system.
  • Secure your outdoor unit by making sure all bolts are secure and tight. You can also protect your unit from debris by clearing the area.
  • If there are any signs of damage, do not turn on your unit; all inspection and replacement work on equipment should be performed by qualified heating and cooling professionals.

Flooding and storm surges can cause significant damage; a house or basement exposed to standing water can damage your home’s water heater, furnace, boiler, air-conditioning, ventilation, and heat pump system.
