There was a storm approaching, so we had to get the house ready.
That meant boarding up the windows, getting ample food, and having the backup generator serviced. My uncle made sure we got all the amenities we required for the day and night. My sister and I visited his family for the summer, and now we’re about to experience our first storm. We were both excited and nervous as we saw the emergency warning on TV. Part of the storm preparation process was having the HVAC system serviced. My uncle wanted to ensure the HVAC system was in the best working condition. He informed us we wouldn’t be able to use the HVAC system during the storm. He had learned that lesson the hard way a long time ago. They’d left the HVAC system running during a storm, and it was damaged beyond repair. My uncle didn’t understand why and that’s when the AC expert installing the new one gave him the answer. The AC expert came by the house to service the unit and help uncle cover the outdoor HVAC. It was best to be safe than sorry with the unit since it was in an exposed area. The whole task was done on time when the storm finally hit. We had to stay indoors as the winds and rain pounded the house. My brother and I were stunned because we’d never heard such a sound before. After it passed, it was time to evaluate the damage outside. My uncle noticed the cover on the outdoor HVAC had been blown off, and lots of dirt, debris, and water had entered the unit.
