Storm Damage Can Include HVAC Components

We chose to live in an area that can be hit with a lot of storms. Many of these storms can be particularly damaging. Luckily, we have never had our house flattened or anything like that. Most of the storms aren’t direct hits so we avoid massive damage. However, there is still plenty of damage done to our property. Trees come down, the fence gets blown over and there is often some damage to the roof from the wind or falling debris. The force of wind has impacted our home over the years. Basically, we have been able to mitigate the damage to a large degree. After the last big storm, I noticed something I hadn’t seen before. Suddenly, I was noticing bugs dropping from the HVAC vents in the ceiling. This freaked me out since we are a super clean family and have never had any kind of bug problem. I could not figure out what was going on. My first call was to the exterminator. He came out to do the necessary spraying to eradicate the pests. However, he recommended that I have the HVAC people come out. It appears that two HVAC duct joints sagged greatly after some support wires were shook lose during the last storm. This led to a gap forming where the bugs entered. The exterminator sealed the area in the attic where the bugs were able to gain access to the house. I had no idea that this sort of scenario was even possible. The next call was to the HVAC company. They set up an appointment with a duct cleaning crew. This crew did a great job of thoroughly cleaning the entire duct system. They also sealed up all the duct joints throughout the house.
