Preparing Your AC for Hurricane Season

June 22, 2020 | Blog

With summer finally settled in, hurricane season is quickly approaching. While you prepare your home for potential impact, make sure to check your AC system. Below you’ll find five easy steps for protecting your investment and preparing it for any potential inclement weather.

Shut off Your AC

Storms may cause power surges that lead to a host of problems, including fires. Be sure to switch it off at the circuit breaker.

Invest In a Generator

Being stuck without power or AC is never fun, especially in a hot Texas summer. Unfortunately, a hurricane could leave you without both for days. Be prepared for this with a backup generator that can power your AC unit if you’re left without power.

Tidy Your Yard

As you’re preparing your unit for hurricane season, be sure to pick up any debris in your backyard that could become potential projectiles. Things like toys, patio furniture, and branches can become dangerous in high winds.

Cover Your Outdoor Unit

If you have central air, cover your outdoor condenser with a heavy tarp or plywood to protect it from the rain and wind.

Remove AC Window Units

While these small but mighty units can be a convenient way to keep you cool, they can also become dangerous projectiles under high wind speeds. Simply unplug the unit and store it inside until after the storm has passed.

After any severe weather passes, you should always check your AC unit for damage and remove any debris. Contact an HVAC professional at Air Tech of Humble if you think your unit may be damaged.

If your AC unit has been wiped out by a hurricane or other storm, our technicians can help you find your next AC system with a replacement from Trane. Whether you’re looking for their most efficient, like the XV20i TruComfort, or something that will run quietly, like the XV18 TruComfort, there is something available for any of your cooling needs.
