As we prepare for the arrival of Hurricane Matthew in South Florida, there are a few things that we can do to help safeguard our families and property against the effects of the storm. While mother nature is always in control, being prepared is always better than not preparing at all.
Here are a few steps that you can take to help minimize the effects of an hurricane on your air conditioner:
1. Where applicable, ensure that the outside unit is properly anchored/secured with hurricane straps/anchor straps so that your unit will be there after the storm.
2. Clear debris and any potential projectiles from around your home and business. These can go flying during the heavy winds that come with the storm.
3. If you are unsure about what to do to prepare your A/C system for the storm or after the storm has passed, our 40 Degrees Air technicians can provide you with the proper information.
We know that this can be a stressful time with making sure that we have enough food and supplies for our families, but getting ready ahead of a hurricane can help to make this process a little easier on everyone before and after the storm.
