Does Rain Affect My Air Conditioner Unit?

HVAC equipment is one of the most important equipment and investments in your house. Air Conditioner unit consists of two main parts: the evaporator coil, which is located indoors in the furnace room, and the compressor unit, which is located outside of the house. You may be worried about the safety of your air conditioner unit outside which is your compressor when it rains.

Fortunately, the Air Conditioner unit compressor is designed with the likelihood of rainfall in mind, and cannot be harmed by such conditions, even severe rainfall. Covering your system is unnecessary during rainfall. You will do more harm to your Air Conditioner unit if you try to cover it with a waterproof tarp during inclement weather, as it restricts air circulation, which keeps the components from drying. This can cause your air conditioner system to rust much faster than it would without any cover over it.

There is one exception when it comes to rain and your Air Conditioner unit. If the area is completely flooded, then it will cause problems. The compressor unit should never be completely submerged in water. If you know a flood is coming, turn off both the Air Conditioner unit and the circuit breaker to prevent shocks, and cover the unit to keep out both water and debris.
