South Florida’s Premier HVAC Company, A&P Air Conditioning, Wants To Make Sure Your Home Is Functioning Like New After Irma
With Hurricane Irma causing major damage after hitting the state of Florida, most residents were left without air conditioning in their homes and condos. The pros at Miami-based A&P Air Conditioning want to make sure that you and your home are back to normal as quickly as possible during this Hurricane season! After a storm, run through this quick checklist before starting up your A/C again:
ACCESS THE DAMAGE
• Make sure the air conditioner isn’t or wasn’t ever submerged underwater. Dirt stains on exterior walls of house and skim of mud on unit are signs of flooding.
• Look for visible signs of damage to the unit itself from windblown objects or fallen trees.
• Remove any debris that accumulated around the air conditioner.
• Ensure that all the electrical and refrigerant lines are intact and there are no damages from the burnt electrical smoke.
• We also recommend getting your A/C inspected and cleaned by a professional, especially if there are any signs of problem.
NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF DAMAGES
• Watch the unit as it is turned on. Ensure that it sounds right, there is no smell of smoke and so signs of electrical shorting.
• Turn it off every time you are not in a position to monitor it.
• Conduct a second check after it’s been running for a while.
