How Do I Protect My Home For Summer Storm Season?

7/24/2023 (Permalink)

You don't have control over nature's timing, but you can take the proper precautions to avoid dealing with a home maintenance or repair issue during a heat wave or severe storm this summer.

We've got some recommendations on protecting your home for the summer storm season in the Hermitage/Donelson area - keep reading to learn more!

What Are Some Top Tips For Storm-Proofing My Home?

Some of our top tips for storm-proofing your Hermitage/Donelson home are:

  • Consider investing in a generator. You may want a backup energy source if power gets knocked out from a storm. A whole-home generator is another excellent option for those looking to invest in keeping your home comfortable when the power is out. A home generator runs on your existing natural gas or LP fuel supply. It's connected to your main power line so that when your power shuts off, your generator automatically turns on and supplies power to your home. 
  • Check downspouts. Place a water leak detector in susceptible areas inside your home, and make sure your gutter's downspouts and extenders are connected and secured so they will not detach during a torrential downpour.
  • Check your HVAC filter. While you will need prior notice to contact an HVAC professional and schedule an official air conditioner tune-up appointment ahead of a storm, you can at least ensure your HVAC filter is clean so that your system, when running continuously, is running optimally.
  • Consider installing a whole-home surge protector. While the odds of a home getting struck by lightning are a million to one, a whole home surge protector can help protect your home from a sudden surge in power from your utility due to storm damage. It's also designed to block the electricity surge of a lightning strike from entering home circuits and protect against lightning strikes.
