Protecting Your AC When Heavy Rain is Expected
There are actually a few things you can do to keep from needing Carrollton emergency AC repairs if the forecast calls for days of heavy rain. You might think covering it with a tarp would be one of them, but it’s not. A tarp won’t do anything to protect your AC from floods. All that will do will be to trap moisture inside the outside portion of the unit, known as the condenser, and will severely restrict the airflow. If that happens, then you’ll need major emergency AC repairs in Carrollton TX.
Instead, contact Efficient Home Solutions before the rain ever begins. We might be able to elevate your unit so that no flood water can get in. We have a lot of experience providing emergency AC repairs in Carrollton TX, so this might be a possible solution.
If it’s not, and flooding rains occur, leave your AC system turned off. Keeping it running could result in severe damage to sensitive internal components. The possibility of a potentially fatal electric shock could also exist. Contact us and we’ll tell you what you should, and should not, do.
After the rain is gone and the water recedes, remove any water that might still be standing by the unit with a shop vac. Also, clear out any debris that might have accumulated. You’ll still need to keep the unit off until we can confirm it’s safe to turn it back on.
