Hurricane Irma is currently predicted to be making land fall during the weekend in Florida. You probably already know that you should be stocked up drinking water, nonperishable foods, flashlights, batteries, and to prep your home for the storm. But did you know you should also prep your HVAC system for the hurricane?
It is important to storm proof your HVAC system to attempt to avoid costly repairs that may have otherwise been possible to avoid. In the case that your system was still damaged by the storm it is important to contact a reputable HVAC business to have it checked on and repairs made. If any flooding occurs on the inside or outside of your heating and air conditioning units, never restore power to the system or turn the thermostat on until you have a qualified HVAC technician inspect your equipment. It’s best to call Gulf Coast Air Systems to schedule a system inspection on your unit.
Whether it’s hurricane season or not, you should always schedule an annual maintenance tune-up for your HVAC system to make sure it’s working efficiently. Give Gulf Coast Air Systems a call at (813)689-2082 to schedule your annual maintenance tune-up or if you have any questions.
