    Florida storm related HVAC

    Anyone getting any storm-related HVAC jobs from the Florida storm? If so what are some of the problems the storm may have caused?

    Probably water damage, blunt force trauma and power outages I would think.

    My sister lives in Flagler Beach (20 miles north of Daytona on A1A). A large section of A1A is completely gone, the pier is half gone, roofs ripped off houses etc. they got hit pretty hard.

    There's no profit on insurance claims except for the insurance companies profits. They just raise your premium to make up for it 100 fold.

    Not all the time. Roof shingles job and DIY. Friend wrecked his truck and got twice the money it was worth but with the wrecked truck there was a lot of injuries involved may have made the $$$$ difference of him getting paid off on his truck so quickly? Hurricane Andrew in Miami friend got replacement cost for a new house took the money and moved out of Miami. Hurricane Charley in Polk County Florida took out a lot of electric Transformers we are still paying for that. Hurricane Donna Miami 1960 dad paint and body shop with Wrecker Service. Made a lot of profit from that storm. Some homeowners may get replacement cost on a new AC condenser if tree fell on it or?

    Looks like your part of S.C. will miss the major nastiness. But it's knockin'.

    I've been through a few major ones. Usually tree damage will net replacement. The agents were great for Katrina, but things changed after that. And a lot of insurers started refusing coverage in those areas.

    We lost our house and bought in a different area, but close by. Our HOI is over 4k a year.

    We usually stay pretty protected from everything right here at the base of the mountains.

    The canes usually weaken pretty significantly before hitting our coast line. Looks like charleston is gonna get it this time though.

    Good deal on the miss. Hope the best for the rest. Life changes when one of those pass through.
