HVAC Hurricane Prep

Secure your outdoor unit

The outdoor unit of your HVAC system is vulnerable to high winds and flying debris during a hurricane. To protect it, make sure it is securely fastened to its base using hurricane straps or brackets and remove any loose objects or debris from around the unit that could become airborne during strong winds.

Shut off the power

Before the hurricane arrives, turn off the power supply to your HVAC system. This will help prevent damage from power surges or electrical issues that can occur during the storm. Locate the circuit breaker or disconnect the switch that controls your HVAC system and switch it off.

Cover the outdoor unit

Consider covering the outdoor unit of your HVAC system with a waterproof and durable tarp or a specialized cover designed for this purpose. This provides an additional layer of protection against wind-driven rain and debris that could enter and potentially damage the unit.
