You air conditioner is very important in keeping your home cool in the summer so taking good care of it will save you a lot of money in the long run. Here are 4 of the most common problems associated with hail damage.
- Cosmetic damage to your air conditioner can be unattractive but little pings and dents in the outer cover should not damage your unit’s cooling ability.
- Large hailstones can break through the outer shell of your air conditioner and cause damage to its internal coils, resulting in leaks and breakdowns.
- If a sizable hailstone collides with the electrical lines between your unit and thermostat, your air conditioner could become unresponsive.
- Your AC’s fan blades are sensitive and even minor collisions can cause wobbly blades. Major collisions can cause bends or breaks.
Be mindful of where you install your unit, try and pick a spot where it will be protected from the elements, guaranteeing you peace of mind and a well functioning machine that will take care of you and your family for a very long time.
