Hurricane Sandy made landfall at the Jersey Shore on October 29, 2012. In the weeks following, we all witnessed the storm’s horrific damage—either by walking our own neighborhoods or seeing images in the media. (Who can forget that photo of a roller coaster partly submerged in the Atlantic?)

Devastation throughout the state—estimated to total around $30 million—has been widely documented. The reality is that seven million people were left without power and nearly 350,000 homes were damaged. The storm’s aftermath had the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) granting New Jersey a Major Disaster Declaration.

But even now, six months after Sandy, there could be some undiscovered damage left behind. Your central air conditioning unit was subjected to severe weather that can impact not only its operation, but also its safety. This makes a pre-season equipment inspection a MUST.

One of our highly trained team members can quickly and efficiently assess your system to ensure optimal safety and performance. To schedule your air conditioner’s pre-season check-up, call us at 609-390-3907 or contact us here and one of our representatives will call you within 24 hours.

And the next time a major storm is forecast to hit us? Make sure your air conditioner is ready with these handy tips:

  1. Turn off your air conditioner to avoid damage from power surges
  2. Cover the unit to help protect it from falling debris
  3. After a severe storm, inspect your air conditioning unit for damage before turning it on
  4. If there is visible damage, call us immediately at 609-390-3907 to have a Broadley’s professional inspect your unit for safety

Until then, stay cool!
