Air conditioners and lightning storms don’t always get along so well. Electrical storms have a way of damaging homes and the technological devices that fill them, and we see our fair share of air conditioning repair in Park City because of the damaging power surges that often accompany a summer storm.
Although the process tends to vary depending on your unit and the storm, most cooling system damage comes in the shape of blown fuses, burnt capacitors, fried compressors, and burned wires. Some of these (compressors) can be costly, while others (capacitors) tend to be a much easier fix. In most cases, your home’s insurance will cover damages that can be linked to a storm, so be sure and check your policy before you call.
