Did you know?
Running your AC system during a tropical storm or hurricane can put your system at risk of electrical damage.
Brown outs are a huge concern during a severe storm. Low voltage dips are actually more damaging than voltage spikes. A severe dip in electrical current damages the AC motor and can lead to a costly repair.
What should you do?
Turn your HVAC system off before or as soon as the storm arrives. If you evacuate, turn your system off when you leave.
Have a backup plan.
- Install a Wi-Fi thermostat, like the Nest Learning Thermostat, so you can turn your system off even when you aren’t home.
- Invest in an HVAC Power Protection device, like the Compressor Defender, that will detect the dip in voltage and turn your system off before damage can be done.
- If you plan on riding out a storm, purchase a window unit to cool a single room. Its far less costly to replace than your entire system in the event of a voltage dip or spike.
What about storm surge?
If you are riding out a storm and you see flooding waters accumulating, turn your system off!
Prevention is your best option. If you are in a flood zone, consider installing your outdoor unit on a raise hurricane rack to protect it from corrosive salt water in the event of storm surge on your property. Call us for a custom quote on raising your HVAC system onto a hurricane rack.
Have your unit inspected.

Hurricane Season in Florida is unpredictable, preparation is key!
Here are a few of our Hurricane Hacks:
- Grab nutritious foods that don’t require cooking like protein bars, coconut water, raw nuts and dried fruit, jerky, soft cheeses and whole grain crackers.
- Save plastic by using 5-gallon jugs for emergency water. Fill them up at home or at a filtered water station.
- Pair your 5-gallon jug with a hand pump attachment, like this one, and set up near your sink. You are now prepped for washing and hydrating!
- You can never have too many portable cellphone chargers. If cell towers stay up, you can follow your local police department on twitter for updates.
