Protect Your AC from Severe Weather

Colorado has its fair share of severe weather. From tornadoes to thunderstorms to hail — you name it, we’ve seen it. If you’ve ever worried about your home during inclement weather, you’re not alone. But what is the best way to prepare your home’s larger investments from storm damage?

Pre-Storm Checklist:

Extreme weather can strike without warning. Make sure these preparations are completed before a storm to protect your home and HVAC system:

1. Cover your condenser.

Purchase a specialty cover created for a condenser or invest in a tarp to best protect your unit from storm damage and debris.

2. Strap down your external unit.

Straps help keep your system tethered to the ground in the event that high winds threaten its stability.

3. Invest in surge protection.

Power lines can be struck during severe weather, resulting in an outage. Once the power returns, it’ll bring an immense surge of energy with it. Invest in whole-home surge protection to prevent excess power from frying your expensive electronics.

What to Do During a Storm

Once the storm hits, you can choose to operate your air conditioner or turn the system off to prevent it from cycling on while the storm rages. If you do choose to turn your HVAC system off, let your air conditioner run as long as possible to better keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Make sure to turn off circuit breakers and the thermostat connected to the system to ensure the unit stays powered down.
