Spring rain may be a nice break from the oppressive Florida heat, but many residents worry that it could impact their air conditioners’ effectiveness during the upcoming summer season, when they need it most, calling for costly Orlando AC repair. A leader in HVAC sales and repair, Del-Air specializes in maintaining your heating and cooling system throughout the year. Here are a couple of the most frequently asked questions our customers ask about protecting their AC from inclement weather:
Does Rain Damage the Outdoor Components of My Air Conditioning Unit?
Actually, rain should not damage your air conditioner at all! Because the outdoor components of air conditioning units are exposed to the elements, home and business owners often worry that an abundance of rain could damage their units. However, AC systems are designed so that precipitation can’t reach its inner components. As a result, your unit should be safe from rain, snow, and even hail storms.
Determined to cover your unit? Just be sure not to use a plastic trash bag or tarp, as these can cause moisture to gather inside your AC. In the long run, that accumulated water can result in mold, mildew, and even rust. Finally, a plastic cover can make your AC attractive to rodents and other small animals seeking cover from the storm.
