Happy Harold’s tip of the week: Make sure your outdoor AC unit is clear of flooding hazards.

With the water level on Lake Ontario at a record high and rising, we wanted to shed light on flooding and the health of your HVAC systems. Your AC system is built to withstand the elements, however it’s not strong enough to endure a flood without repercussion. It takes only a foot of standing water around your AC unit to cause severe damage to the moving parts and electrical components. Because of this, we urge you to take a look at the tips below.

Here are some tips to help your AC survive the next few weeks:

  1. Prop sand bags all around your home, including the air conditioning unit
  2. Deactivate all electrical controls to your AC
  3. Do not cover your unit with a tarp

What if the water gets inside?

If the water gets inside the basement where your furnace and other HVAC equipment is located then you have a different problem. Your indoor systems are not built to withstand the moisture, like your AC is. In this event, immediately shut off power to the equipment. Then contact High Performance Heating and Cooling, your trusted HVAC company.

 

If you have experienced any flooding at all, call High Performance Heating and Air for an inspection as soon as possible. We promise to make your home and systems safety our top priority through this difficult time of year.

Awesome Service! Joe M. and Phil cleaned my ducts yesterday. Not only were they really thorough and helpful, but they were also very kind and I felt very comfortable having them in my home and around my children as the process took most of the day.

The service technician, Zane, did a great job. He communicates well and did a wonderful job setting up our thermostat for us. He did a top to bottom cleaning of our furnace and air conditioner.
