Ricotta Asks: Did A Tornado Blow Away Your Mechanical System?

If you have been a victim of severe weather in the St. Louis area, you’re certainly not alone.  Over the years, we at Ricotta have seen how storms can damage residential or commercial air handling systems and reduce efficiency.

After a storm, we know cooling systems tend to have problems.  We provide the solutions to correct them.  Our technicians look at the following areas:

  • Mechanical components, such as burners, heat exchangers, and condenser coils.
  • Ductwork
  • Vents
  • Chimneys

and provide just the solutions to bring your system back to peak operating efficiency.

Having had my own roof blown off by a tornado, I understand the shock and overwhelming emotions that accompany such a disaster, along with the pain of loss.  It may just be “stuff” you lost, but it was your stuff, and whatever it was, it was important to you.

I remember the day the tornado hit my home.  It was uncannily quiet (truly the calm before the storm). Suddenly the air shifted and the winds changed…amazing what can happen in an instant!

According to National Geographic, tornados are vertical funnels of spinning air.  Tornado winds can exceed 250 miles per hour, so that spinning air becomes mighty strong!

At Ricotta Heating & Air we know that, if your home or HVAC system has been affected by a tornado, we must respond quickly, offering emergency air conditioning service and repairs, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
