Crawl Space and Air Conditioning Compressors

Two important items to check after last weekend’s storm:

1) If salt water entered your crawl space, check for wet insulation.  If you suspect that any water touched the insulation, have it removed and replaced.  Insulation never “dries” and could eventually allow mold to grow on the floor boards above.

2) Most air conditioning compressors, heat pumps, and the electrical junction boxes are mounted on raised platforms- but not always high enough to avoid the water.  Ask your HVAC company to inspect.  Salt water will corrode the system.
