It was really strange and kind of scary what happened the last time we had a big rain storm.
My central heating and air conditioning system ended up shorting out! It was something that almost caused a fire as well.
If it wasn’t raining, my central heating and air conditioning system would have most likely ended up burning my house down. It was the rain that shorted it out in the first place. Somehow it got into the wires and caused an electrical hazard. I had to call the local heating and air conditioning company for them to send out a certified heat and a/c specialist to fix my central heating and cooling system. They were even a bit baffled on how the central heat and a/c unit ended up getting affected by the rain in this way. Usually heat and a/c units are protected from this. The HVAC specialist was as shocked as I was. But they were able to repair the central heating and cooling unit and get it back up and running. Hopefully the next time it rains it will not do this again. The heating and cooling specialist put some extra protection around my central heating and air conditioning unit to try to ensure that rain will not get in there again and cause an electrical hazard like this. We can only hope that this actually works and that it does not happen ever again. Only time will tell and we will see what happens the next time it rains.
