With floodwaters on everyone’s minds these past few weeks, residents of Hammond, LA haven’t had time for much else. When the water recedes and the time comes to assess the damage, you need to make sure your heater and air conditioning system are high on the list of priorities. Contact your insurance company to learn the next steps, but once you know how to proceed, you need a professional to handle any water damage to your heating and air conditioning system.
Most air conditioners and heating systems rely on electronic components, which are apt to suffer a great deal from flooding. Corrosion is a problem too, as is the growth of mold and fungi, often long after the floodwaters have receded. Gas lines and pressure gauges often suffer damage as well, and can create a serious hazard in situations like the kind we’re currently experiencing.
Assessment, Repairs… or Replacement
The first step to take when assessing the damage to your system is to call in a professional to give your HVAC system a close look. It’s important to take stock quickly because damage can keep you from returning to your home, especially damage to the gas or electrical components. High temperatures are never far away in our part of the world and if your system has suffered catastrophic damage, you need to determine what it is and the best steps to take to get it up and running again as swiftly as possible.
Unfortunately, in cases like these, you’re usually looking at replacing the system instead of repairing it. With home insurance and federal disaster relief funds, you have options for covering the costs involved, and with the right team on your side, you can make the proper determination as to what’s needed.
