If you live in Texas, you know that the winter months have a tendency to be unpredictable. The first few weeks of November has been proof of this, and Texas natives have surely been taking note of how volatile recent weather conditions have been. It seems as though the rain streak we’ve been enduring may be never ending. And with tornado warnings, flood concerns, and high wind speeds being given out what seems like every other day, people are likely more concerned with maintaining their safety than they are for anything else. But it would be wise to remember that taking precautions to protect your home from hazardous weather can save you quite a headache down the road. Anything from humidity to flooding can affect your HVAC unit, which in term can have an impact on your quality of life.
Locals in Katy and Sugar Land may find themselves needing HVAC repair due to any number of potential weather disturbances. Tornado warnings and high wind velocity should be taken seriously, because strong winds can cause damage to outside components of your HVAC system. Falling trees or other heavily weighted items may break your condenser fan, leaving you to deal with unpleasant conditions on top of storm issues.
If flood warnings have been issued, you may find yourself facing another potential hazard to the quality of your air conditioning or HVAC unit. Any sort of water damage can cause issues with your HVAC unit. The consensus among HVAC contractors is that 15 inches of water depth is the maximum amount of water an HVAC unit can withstand without incurring damages. If you find that your floodwaters exceed this be sure to call a contractor immediately to minimize damages.
