Hail damage and protection
By: Mike Huss, Loss Control Supervisor
Most areas of the country experience hail storms that can cause significant damage to rooftop equipment, severely disrupting your business and costing you time, money or even customers. A major hail storm can severely damage fins on your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, rendering it inoperable. This could seriously impact your operations or cause you to cancel functions.
Hail guards - consider installing hail guards that serve as a protective shield for your HVAC equipment, as well as roof vents and cooling equipment. Hail large and small can severely damage a unit. Condenser coil damage, not noticed or addressed, affects the coil’s efficiency, increases your costs and shortens the useful life expectancy of your equipment. Contact a HVAC contractor or equipment manufacturer for more solutions to protect your valuable equipment and keep your business operating.
