Protect Your Home During Severe Spring Weather

April 6, 2023

Tornadoes, thunderstorms, and flooding are all common during this time, which can cause significant damage to your home and property. Here are some tips to help you keep your home safe during severe weather outbreaks.

Protect Your Plumbing

During severe weather outbreaks, your plumbing can be at risk of damage due to flooding and power outages. Make sure your sump pump is working correctly and a battery backup sump pump is a “must have” item or a generator in case of power outages. Also, have a backflow preventer installed to prevent contaminated water from entering your home’s water supply.

Keep Your HVAC System in Good Condition and Protected

Your HVAC system can also be at risk during severe weather outbreaks. Have your system inspected and maintained by a professional to ensure it’s working correctly. Clean and replace air filters regularly to keep the system running efficiently. Have a surge protector installed to protect your HVAC system from power surges during thunderstorms and lightning strikes.

Install Whole-House Surge Protection

Power surges during severe weather outbreaks can damage your electrical appliances and equipment. Have whole-house surge protection installed to protect your home’s electrical system from power surges. This will help protect your appliances, electronics, and HVAC system from damage.

Prepare Your Home against Flooding

Flooding can cause significant damage to your home and property. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clean and free of debris to prevent water damage. Install flood sensors and backup pumps in your basement to prevent flooding. Also, consider elevating electrical outlets and appliances to prevent water damage if you know your basement takes on water.

By protecting your plumbing, keeping your HVAC system in good condition, installing surge protection, and preparing your home for flooding, you can minimize the risk of damage and keep your home and family safe.
