We’re Here for Your HVAC and Electrical Needs post-Hurricane Florence

September 24, 2018

Hurricane Florence and the flooding that accompanied it have brought devastation to our front doors. HVAC and electrical systems, along with many other aspects of homes in Raleigh and Fayetteville, NC, can experience varying degrees of damage from hurricanes and severe flooding, possibly resulting in the need for AC repairs or electrical services. Any outdoor components of these systems are at particular risk, especially those that are on or near the ground.

Flooding Can Damage HVAC and Electrical Systems

The condensers of central air conditioners and ductless systems are typically located outside and, once again, are usually on the ground. If you live in an area that experienced severe flooding, your AC unit may have been shorted out. Unfortunately, when a condenser has sustained electrical shorts, it will likely need to be replaced.

You should also be aware of the possibility that flooding and water damage can cause parts of this component to become corroded, so it’s a good idea to have your system checked out by a professional, even if it is still running. Corroded parts break down which may cause further damage to your system, so the longer you wait, the worse it can be.

For homes that were themselves flooded, the damage can be much more extensive and much more costly. Air handlers, furnaces, and electrical systems can all be affected by flooding and should also be checked by a professional. Flooding can also compromise and contaminate your ductwork, which can have a negative impact on your heating and cooling systems’ performance, as well as your indoor air quality.
