Whether you love it or you hate it, without fail, Baltimore, Maryland’s rainy season arrives as spring heats up and turns into summer. Since you depend on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable throughout the summer, you’ll want to make sure the wet weather doesn’t cause breakdowns. From selectively switching off the power to scheduling HVAC maintenance, find out how to protect your HVAC system during the rainy months in Baltimore.

Relocate Outdoor Furniture

When the weather forecast indicates that a storm is on its way, relocate or secure outdoor furniture and other objects in your yard as quickly as possible. Your lawn chairs and flower pots may not seem dangerous on most days, but during a storm, they can turn into projectiles that can damage the outdoor unit of your HVAC system.

Switch Off the Power

Summer storms often bring hot, muggy air that may tempt you to turn your air conditioner up to full blast. However, since storms can also cause flash flooding in Baltimore, you’ll want to prioritize preserving your HVAC system. If flash flooding is a possibility, switch off the thermostat to protect your air conditioner’s outdoor unit. If water enters your home, switch off the power at the circuit breaker to prevent electrical shocks or surges.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

While you can usually take steps to protect your HVAC system, sometimes storms blow in so quickly that you can’t react. If your yard or home does sustain flash flooding or if storm-related debris enters your HVAC system, refrain from turning it on and attempting to run it normally. Instead, don’t hesitate to call the Griffith Energy Services team for air conditioner service. We’ll clean and calibrate your cooling system as necessary and make sure it’s safe to operate after a storm.

Whether you want to prepare for the rainy season ahead or you need to address damage from a recent storm, don’t hesitate to call your local air conditioning experts. Call the HVAC professionals at Griffith Energy Services, Inc. today at 888-474-3391.
