I have just moved down south and I am over the moon about it. I am from the mountains and have lived in the snow all my life. I have never lived near the beach or entirely even been to the beach. Now I live right next to the beach and I could not be happier. I go out to the ocean almost every day. They only complication I have with residing so close to the beach is the threat of hurricanes. I was talking to my Grandmother and she was telling myself and others all about the last big storm that hit. She was telling myself and others about all of the damage that happened to her little home. She said it wasn’t too exhausting for her and that most of her damage had only been to her AC unit and not the roof and stuff. She said that there was some flooding and high winds that tore up the AC unit. She had to have an Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional to come replace the AC unit because it was so broken and damaged. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional gave her some little pieces of sage advice on how to prevent this damage from occurring to the Heating, Ventilation & A/C unit in the event of another hurricane. My Grandmother told these and other storm tips to me. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional told her to turn off the AC unit while I was in the storm. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional also said to get rid of all the debris or loose objects from around the AC unit. Another item the Heating, Ventilation & A/C tech mentioned was elevating the AC unit so it was up in the air a bit in case of flooding. Overall I am not too scared about a hurricane getting to my AC unit now because I have taken the advice of the HVAC guy.
