Hurricane Season Special — Prepare Your AC for the Next Storm

Flooding and strong winds caused by hurricane.

Now that we have entered the peak of hurricane season, Polar Bear Air Conditioning is working hard to make sure our neighbors are prepared for what’s to come. We’re publishing these best practices and tips to help you and your family stay safe and complete your hurricane season preparation. 

If you’d like to go the extra mile, we’re offering a Hurricane Season Special where one of our friendly, expert technicians will come down to inspect and secure your AC in Cayman. Peace of mind is priceless, but we’re happy to be offering it for the low price of $169 this hurricane season.

In the meantime, follow these tips to prepare your air conditioner for hurricanes.

Unplug Your AC Unit

Preparing air conditioners for hurricanes starts with unplugging your AC unit once the storm is about to roll in. Lightning strikes and the power surges that often follow a hurricane-induced power outage break countless AC units every year. By unplugging your AC unit as part of your hurricane season preparation, you protect it against a circuit-frying power surge and make sure it can live to keep you cool another day.

Alternatively, you can install a surge protector — this will allow you to keep your unit plugged in without worrying about damages occurring from a power surge. Our AC technicians can give you tips and tricks on finding the best surge protector for your AC system.

Use Your Air Conditioning Unit Before the Storm Hits

Before you unplug your AC unit, get as much use out of it as you can. While your comfort might not be the element of hurricane season preparation that comes to mind first, it’s quite important. When a hurricane comes through, it traps hot air and humidity near the ground and produces unbearable weather conditions. Make things a little easier on yourself by getting your home as cool as possible before the storm rolls in.

Secure Your Air Conditioning Systems

High winds are sometimes enough to send outdoor objects flying. Prepare your air conditioner for a hurricane with special straps that can secure it to the ground. Heavy-duty hurricane straps are strong enough to keep your AC unit in place during extreme weather, avoiding expensive and potentially dangerous instances of falling appliances.

Protect Your AC Unit from Flying Debris

Once you’ve secured your air conditioner, your next step in hurricane season preparation is protecting it from flying debris. Tarp or plywood covers can go a long way in protecting an AC unit, both by cushioning impacts and preventing small objects from getting inside the appliance.

Clear Your Yard and Patio

Patio furniture is light enough that hurricane winds will easily lift them up and toss them around. These items are sufficiently large and can threaten your AC unit, windows, and the exterior of your home in general. When a hurricane is on its way, you need to remove outdoor objects like chairs and potted plants until the storm passes.

Hire an HVAC Technician After the Storm Passes

If you take all of these steps towards hurricane preparation, you give your air conditioning system a great chance of making it through a storm. However, you should be cautious by hiring an HVAC professional to inspect it and make sure that everything is in working order.

When you need help protecting your HVAC system from a storm, Polar Bear Air Conditioning is the repair company you can trust. We have a great deal of experience in the area and often spot storm risks that others don’t. If you suspect that a storm has damaged your AC, reach out to us for air conditioning repair in Grand Cayman and the surrounding areas. With our hurricane season special, you can prepare your air conditioner for hurricanes and feel secure for just $169.

I recently had my air conditioning unit installed by Polar Bear Air Conditioning in Cayman Kai. I was very pleased with the service I received. The workmen, Jerome, Tony, and Nathan, were all professional and courteous. They arrived on time and were dressed in their uniforms. They laid out carpeting where they would be walking inside the house to avoid leaving debris or making a mess. They worked clean and kept the space tidy. They were polite and provided me a good understanding of the work they completed as well as showed me all pieces of equipment. They emailed me a jpg image of each piece of equipment's information plate so that I could record it in my home management software, as requested.Here are some specific details about the work they did:They installed 3 new high-efficiency air conditioning units that are much more energy-efficient (26 SEER) than my old units.They cleaned and disinfected the air ducts, as well as replaced previously installed flex ducts with rigid duct work that is superior in efficiency and durability.They installed new filters to help keep the air clean and free of allergens.They explained the operation of the new units to me and answered all of my questions.They cleaned up after themselves and left my home in good condition.I would highly recommend Polar Bear Air Conditioning to anyone in need of air conditioning installation or service. They are a professional and reliable company that provides excellent customer service.

Our ac stopped working a few weeks ago and Polar Bear sent Roemaine and Tyrone to diagnose the problem. Roemaine and Tyrone very quickly identified the problem and communicated with me. It turns out the best option was replacing the condensing unit which Paul quoted within a matter of minutes and they had expert installation team (Tony and Jerome) complete late in the afternoon with short notice. I’m very happy with their work!

I have, over the years been trying to find a reliable, professional A/C maintenance and repair company. I have tried a few. That search is now over after using Polar Bear. Billy and Jerry were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable and professional from the initial diagnosis to the final repair. I highly recommend this company and the team that came to do work on my AC. Tim.

Great work. I received an email and also a call from the dispatcher that the tech would be calling me, and sure enough, the tech (Simon) called shortly after that to let me know he was on his way which was very much appreciated. The customer service from all of the team and updates was spot on, and Simon was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He was also very courteous and professional. I rate Polar Bear as the best company in town. Great work!

Tyrone is very knowledgeable and professional, he gave me a step by step update of what he was doing. He also gave advice on how best to protect not only the unit but my family. My wife and I are totally satisfied with the service.

Polar Bear's service and response was amazing! Nicole who answered my phone call and scheduled me was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! The Technician assigned to me was Simon and he was also extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Within a minute of looking at my system he knew what the errors and issues were! He was able to fix one of the two problems that day, and then came scheduled and came the following day to fix the remaining issue. He was perfectly on time and the courtesy call before arrival both times before arriving was a welcome touch as it made sure that I was ready.Will continue using polar bear for all my HVAC needs! 5*

My experience with Polar Bear has been awesome!!!! From the beginning, the office staff were so professional and kind, then receiving my AC quote, the gentleman has been very prompt in his response time—, the kind of employee that puts customer first and has such a nice and an approachable attitude, very patient in answering my questions and providing guidance as required by me- customer focus completely, then as if that wasn’t enough to convince me to move my AC maintenance and installation to Polar Bear; the technicians that attended to my AC installation provided such excellent service— what stood out was how they used a carpet that was placed on my floor to avoid making any mess on my floor and whatever mess they did make, the technician used their broom to remove it. I know this message is long but I really wanted to express my THANK YOU and appreciation for such excellent customer service that I’ve experienced by Polar Bear — you have won me as a customer!! THANK YOU! Keep up the excellent customer service!!! Looking forward to building a relationship with you as a new customer.

I am very pleased with the service that was provided by Polar Bear. I had an issue where the ac was not working at one of my rental properties after hours on a weekend. Rohan came all the way out to East End at 10pm and worked on the issue to get the system back up and running. He was very thorough and explained the issue in detail, and the measures I needed to take to prevent it from reoccurring. Excellent customer service
