The last crazy wind storm last week had myself and others racing outside as soon as the rain stopped! I was so worried that our heating plus A/C equipment might have taken a terrible hit… I don’t even live near the ocean or in a tornado heavy plains state, so I tend to freak out when any one of us actually get high winds. This environment just clearly isn’t built for it, plus the houses aren’t either. Tree limbs started coming down everywhere in every direction, plus folks in older homes were significantly uneasy that they would start losing parts of their roofs… Fortunately for me, our roof was intact in the fullest, but when I finally came outside, there were tree branches on top of our ailing and ancient heating plus A/C unit. I immediately raced over to get everything off the device. Then I shook the water off the tarp, plus untied the straps; pulling that thing off was like living some kind of horror film; I was so incredibly uneasy about what I was about to find. I breathed a large sigh of relief when I found that our condenser hadn’t taken any damage at all. There wasn’t even a dent or scratch in the air conditioner condenser cabinet. I was so grateful; then I resituated the tarp plus carefully redid all of the straps so I could get it back into where it was supposed to go. Then I just went back to pulling various branches out of our driveway, plus cutting up the workable stuff to use as kindling in our fireplace. Unfortunately when our neighbor came out, he was not so lucky, as his heating plus A/C condenser had been crushed by a big tree branch. I really hope he has it insured, otherwise that unfortunate guy is in for a painful HVAC bill.
