The flooding in Colorado has been the worst natural disaster to hit the United States in recent memory. By now, those of us who haven’t experienced the destruction caused by the flooding first hand have at least seen pictures of highways literally being washed away and heard stories about the thousands of people who have lost their homes, but there is one seemingly minor problem associated with flooding that many people have overlooked: the damage that it can do to a home’s HVAC system.
It only takes a small amount of water to damage an HVAC system and make it unsafe. Motors that have been submerged are considered unreliable and should be replaced, as do furnace control boards and gas valves. These are all essential elements of any home HVAC system, and when they suffer water damage they can make the entire system unsafe.
To say that the flooding in Colorado has been bad is a gross understatement. If you live in the areas affected by the flooding but were lucky enough to have a home that was mostly undamaged, you may still have an HVAC system in need of inspection, repair and replacement. This can get costly, especially for those who actually have been victims of severe flood damage. That is why Smith & Willis is offering free HVAC safety inspection for those who have been victims of the Colorado floods. If it turns out that any part of your system does need to be replaced, our experts will gladly work with you to get the necessary insurance paperwork to help you replace your system. We will even donate $100 to help flood victims for every furnace that we sell, donate a portion of the proceeds of service calls to flood relief, and give 15% off flood victim service recommendations.
