    Ensure that Your System is Prepared

    Storm-Proofing-Your-HVAC-UnitIs your HVAC unit ready to weather the storm that is hurricane season? While a major storm can wreak havoc on homes, there are a number of steps you can take to make sure your unit stays as safe and secure as possible in harrowing conditions.

    Prevention is critical when it comes to protecting your HVAC equipment and home, overall. To effectively prepare your home in advance of a storm, you can take measures like covering and securing your outdoor HVAC equipment, storing away any loose objects in the surrounding area that could cause damage, and preemptively addressing the possibility of a power surge with one of our surge protection packages.
