Homeowners Should Prepare Their Air Conditioners for Hurricane Irma

09/07/17

HOUSTON (September 7, 2017) - One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® (One Hour), a national heating and air conditioning brand with independently owned and operated locations throughout North America, recommends homeowners follow these quick tips as Hurricane Irma approaches the East Coast. Licensed HVAC experts are available for interviews locally to talk about these tips and more:

  • Turn off gas and electricity to your home to ensure safety if the water rises
  • Close all exterior crawl space vents and tape them off to prevent moisture from getting in
  • If your home is on a crawl space, have a battery backup with batteries in the upper floor of your home
  • Tie down the exterior air conditioning unit to keep it from washing away
  • If your home floods, make sure to have a Certified HVAC Technician inspect your A/C and furnace before you turn it back on
  • Do not wait until bad weather is here to shut off power to the AC unit.

One Hour can provide experts for local interviews in your area to talk about these tips and general hurricane preparation before, during and after a major storm. One Hour was recently ranked No. 1 in the HVAC services category in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list.
