Having a reliable HVAC system in Florida has made summer days bearable. While summer is meant for relaxation, storms can disrupt your care-free fun. And we all know that with heat and humidity comes rain and lightning. An astonishing fact about Florida is that it earned its title as the lightning capital due to the number of thunderstorms, and for good reason too. In fact, Florida has the highest number of lightning strikes per year, leading the nation in amount of strikes. Many people steer clear of being outdoors during these thunder storms but what about your air conditioning system?
