Can A Storm Damage My HVAC Unit?

October 17, 2022 | Blog

If those Texas storms are doing a number on your HVAC system, you’re not alone. HVAC systems tend to be damaged during storms due to the excess of water and wind, which can be detrimental to the unit as a whole. However, there are plenty of things that you can do to ensure that your HVAC unit is protected from storms.

How A Storm Damages your HVAC System

Violent storms can disparage your system in a variety of ways, and unfortunately, there are a lot of complications that can come due to standing water and high wind. Luckily, there are a lot of ways that you can tell whether it was the recent storm that is causing HVAC damage.

Power Problems

Whenever a storm knocks out local power, there is the possibility of a power surge. This can be detrimental to the way that your system receives power due to the “flood” of electricity that happens when the power is turned back on. If your machine is not turning back on after a bad power surge, it would be worth it to invest in a surge protector. This controls the amount of power that is put back into the machine post-blackout and works wonderfully to conserve electricity.

Uneven Circulation

If your air conditioner isn’t equally cooling all of the areas of your house, it’s actually a sign of powerful wind damage. Refrigerant lines, which handle the chemical that makes the air substantially cooler, can break due to powerful winds. This would be something that you wouldn’t be able to repair yourself, as the amount of damage can vary. Instead, call air conditioning maintenance to explain the state of your lines and to refill on essentials such as refrigerant.

Strange Noises

If your air conditioner suddenly makes loud or strange noises, it’s a sign that loose debris may have flown into your unit. Strong winds from stores can pick up dust, debris, and animals and push them into exposed vents. This can cause serious damage to different internal components which is what would cause the noise. Whenever this happens, shut down the system together until a technician can come and assess the damage. If there is an outdoor unit, you can open the panel to make sure there aren’t any holes, dust, or debris.
