While Eureka’s climate is relatively mild compared to other areas in California, we do experience occasional storms. Wind, heavy rains, and flooding may happen, which could potentially cause damage to your home’s air conditioner. Not all of this damage may be visible or apparent at first. And if not detected, it could lead to further damage or promote a hazardous situation.

Here are four signs that your AC may have storm damage and requires repair from a professional air conditioning technician.

1. Your AC Won’t Turn on After a Storm

Power surges are common during a bad storm. Your AC may or may not turn back on after one. A surge can fry your system’s electrical components or damage its compressor. If your AC won’t turn on or it does turn on, but you had electronic items damaged during a surge, it is time to call for a checkup and possibly a repair.

2. Your AC Keeps Tripping Its Circuit Breaker

Circuit breakers act as a safety mechanism and trip when something is not right with your electrical system. If your AC’s circuit breaker keeps flipping back off after you reset it, your unit may have been damaged from a power surge during a storm.

3. Your AC Makes Weird Noises

All air conditioners make a little noise. But if yours is suddenly making new sounds after a storm, it could likely have damage or have debris in it. It is best to turn off your AC until a professional can inspect it.

4. Your AC Is Not Cooling as It Should

Does it seem like the air coming out of your vents is not as cold after the storm has passed? Your system may have a leak because its refrigerant line was damaged during the storm. If not repaired, eventually, your system will stop cooling completely and could experience further damage.

What our customers are saying
Five-Star Customer Reviews

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.

Shutterbug S.

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

Kathi J.

All three technicians worked well together. They treated each other kindly and were thoughtful and courteous with me. They did a final and complete cleanup after the installment of my new heater. They were respectful of my home. I’m grateful I used this company.
