Storm Winds, Hail, and Lightning Could Damage Commercial HVAC Systems

Powerful storms can easily wreak havoc in any given area. Strong winds, lightning bolts, and hailstones can all contribute to property damage. Unfortunately, Mississippi residents are expected to face poor weather conditions—and the possibility of damage—by the first week of April.

Most commercial HVAC units are situated on the roof of a building, leaving them vulnerable to hailstorms. One of the more common signs of hail-damaged air conditioning systems is bent condenser fins.

Fins that have been bent to roughly ¼ to 3/8 inches deep are usually classified as having major structural damage. Although there is still a chance that the unit can be repaired, fixing it might take a while. Replacing the unit might be the better alternative. Either way, the damaged fins need to be addressed quickly as they cause air flow blockage.

Fully-functional commercial air conditioners are noisy machines, constantly blaring a loud whirring sound. This noise is completely normal and should be no cause for alarm. However, when you begin to hear clanking, thudding, squealing, or growling noises, call a repair service ASAP. These sounds typically indicate a damaged condenser or compressor.
