Keep Your Equipment Safe This Summer
May 14, 2010
For most people the summer is a time of rest and relaxation. Most people love to be in the warm weather and enjoy the summer breeze. But for computers and electrical equipment, the summer can provide some unforeseen dangers.
Warmer weather typically means that every so often a storm can form out of nowhere. Since we like to feel the warm summer breeze, there are times when we will keep our windows open. If you leave your windows open and a storm should hit, then rain water can seep into your home. This can be extremely bad for any sort of equipment that runs on electricity.
So we advise you to always be aware of your open windows if they are by expensive electrical equipment. If you are going to leave your home, make sure to close the window in case a storm should arrive. If you are home and you notice the skies getting cloudy, or you hear the distant rumble of thunder, make sure to double check all of your windows. You don’t want to have to replace expensive electrical gear just because of a little fall of rain.
