What to Do if Your Air Conditioning System Was Flooded During a Storm

The recent flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in our area has left a great many homeowners struggling to recover from damages and losses sustained in this major weather event. Depending on the extent of flooding on your property, you may be in the market for a Cypress air conditioning replacement system. Here are some helpful tips for homeowners with HVAC issues associated with flooding in our area.

Turn Off the Power

Making sure that the electricity is turned off to your HVAC system should be one of your first moves after your return to your home. This can prevent dangerous situations when examining the condition of your outdoor and indoor air conditioning equipment. Turning the power off and leaving it off is essential for your own safety and to prevent further damage to your equipment before it can be evaluated to determine if it is safe to use.

Schedule an Inspection

If any part of your system has been compromised by the intrusion of water, calling a company that specializes in Cypress air conditioning repair services can provide you with an expert evaluation of its condition and the best way to proceed. If your indoor unit was not affected, it may be possible to restore your system to full functionality. Your HVAC technician can assess the damage and provide you with an estimate of the costs to repair or to replace your heating and cooling system. If the interior equipment has been damaged, however, it may be safer and more cost-effective to have a Cypress air conditioning replacement done than to attempt to identify the components that may have sustained damage during the flooding.

Perform a Thorough Cleaning

How long has your unit been underwater? Flood waters can carry dirt and debris that can affect the operation of your outdoor and indoor HVAC equipment. Making sure these contaminants are removed and that your system is clean can reduce the risk of damage to your equipment and health issues for your family. In most cases, the safest course of action is to call on a qualified HVAC company to clean your equipment and to ensure that it is ready and safe for use.
