Hail is a form of solid precipitation in the form of balls or irregular lumps of ice. The coil of your HVAC exterior unit can be damaged by hail. The coil fins can be bent by the impact of hailstones. The amount of damage varies greatly depending on the size of the hail, the wind speed, and wind direction. Extensive damage to the coil will cause elevated operating temperature which will eventually cause the system to stop cooling completely.In most cases, HVAC hail damage can be repaired by your HVAC technician using a “fin comb” to straighten the fins. Use the Hail Assessment Form to upload photographs, PDFs and file information to receive an analysis that determines if the hail damaged fins can be combed out.
