HVAC Wind Damage
High winds typically accompany a variety of severe weather conditions, including tornadoes, hurricanes, and thunderstorms. Regardless of the storm type, high winds can be the catalyst of catastrophic damage to roofs, siding, fences, and HVAC systems. With high enough wind speeds, condensing units can be blown over or flying objects and debris can damage the coil. Similar to hail damage, wind damaged HVAC systems can often be repaired to restore the insured’s system to pre-loss condition, making this an important peril for adjusters to understand, particularly as wind risks increase during tornado and hurricane seasons. Our HVAC Wind Damage Adjuster Guide reviews the most common wind risks to HVAC systems, how these losses can be repaired, and a breakdown of how wind claims are recategorized after HVACi’s onsite inspection.
