We had a pretty rough hurricane season last year. One storm system in particular dumped tons of rain and had pretty fierce winds. Sure enough, the power lines near our home were damaged and we lost power for a couple of days. I would not have minded that this happened so much, were it not for the fact that you obviously can’t have any air conditioning at that point. I really need to get wise like my neighbors and invest in a generator for such times. Anyway, after a couple of days, the work crews were able to get out to the power lines and repair them. We were all quite happily relieved when the lights came back on. I fully expected to be able to crank up my air conditioning and get some cooling relief after two days of sweating. Unfortunately, me and my family came to find that the A/C was not working near as well as it did before the storm. it seemed to have a very hard time of it keeping our home cool, and I was pretty concerned. I had already had the necessary maintenance done on my air conditioning system well before summer and the hurricanes arrived. Nevertheless, I decided that I needed to call out my go-to HVAC company, to examine the problem and determine a solution.The HVAC technician revealed something that I had not considered. There was an extensive amount of debris blown into the air conditioner outside unit, and it was all clogged up. The fan was not able to rotate properly, due to all of the gunk. The HVAC technician managed to clean it all off and to get the system working again. I’m very glad that is all it took!
