Hope for the Best, Expect the Worst: How to Prepare Your HVAC

Power outages, blackouts, and even brownouts can affect your HVAC equipment more profoundly than you realize.

While fall temperatures are milder than their summer counterparts, you can still expect some wild weather. Hurricane season is still around, as evidenced by the astonishing amount of damage Ida left in its wake. Power outages, blackouts, and even brownouts can affect your HVAC equipment more profoundly than you realize. So what can you do to futureproof them in this respect? Well, we are here to help!

Arrange Inspections for Backup Generators 

Your first step towards success hinges on timely inspections. Without this crucial part of the process, you don’t know what you don’t know, shall we say. By getting these inspections done, you can minimize the effects of downtime. That’s because the highly experienced technicians can diagnose problems, recommend fixes, and make those repairs before anything can go wrong. Backup generators are essential for those businesses that are classified as “mission-critical,” and they are also fantastic options for ordinary businesses and, yes, even homeowners as well. Alternative power sources can be more expensive than conventional ones, but they will end up paying for themselves in the long run. 

Shield Outdoor Units Against the Elements 

We also recommend that you reinforce the measures you use to protect your outdoor HVAC units against mother nature’s fury. For many facility managers and building designers, the rooftop HVAC system setup makes the most sense. But heatwaves and powerful storms have shown how destructive they can be. That’s why this preparation is so important to enact as soon as possible. 

Get Repairs, Retrofits, and Upgrades Underway

While wind and rain are seen as common and bothersome weather conditions, they can lead to wear and tear that you can’t afford to ignore. For this reason, we must emphasize the importance of having repairs, retrofits, and upgrades completed with shorter turnaround times. And for that result to happen, you’ve got to work with the best HVAC contractors you can find in the Mid-Atlantic region! Besides, this is yet another indication that you shouldn’t postpone preventative maintenance when the time comes. Is your current contract about to expire? Don’t hesitate to renegotiate!

Continuously Monitor the Condition of Your HVAC System

One last piece of advice we have for you is this: keep an eye on your HVAC system. Special monitoring equipment can be installed into your system and provide easy-to-see information about issues such as clogged filters, poor airflow, and malfunctioning blower motors.
