How to Prep Your AC Unit for a Hurricane

September 12, 2017 9:44 am

When a hurricane is on the way, it's important to batten down the hatches--including your AC unit. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning recommends homeowners follow these quick tips for AC and general home prep:

- Turn off gas and electricity to your home to ensure safety if the water rises.

- Close all exterior crawl space vents and tape them off to prevent moisture from getting in.

- If your home is on a crawl space, have a battery backup with batteries in the upper floor of your home.

- Tie down the exterior air conditioning unit to keep it from washing away.

- If your home floods, make sure to have a Certified HVAC Technician inspect your A/C and furnace before you turn it back on.

- Do not wait until bad weather is here to shut off power to the AC unit.
