If you have surge protectors providing protection for your TV and computer, it should not surprise you to know those surges you are so concerned about could also negatively affect your HVAC system. HVAC surge protectors protect one of the largest investments you make in your home. It may surprise you to learn that the surges are not only caused by your electric company’s power fluctuations, they are also generated by appliances you run in your home such as the dishwasher, dryer and well or pool pumps.
Buying HVAC surge protectors provides protection from the over 300 surges each American home experiences annually. Between the fluctuations caused by appliances receiving current in your home, your electric company and nature’s addition of lightning strikes, you HVAC system is in relatively serious danger of being damaged by a surge. It is the most susceptible to damage during a surge because of the vulnerability of its internal circuitry.
Damage to these circuits is also very expensive to repair and not always covered by the unit’s warranty. An HVAC surge protector can protect the whole system. The surge protector provides protection against surges effecting air conditioners and furnaces. A single phase HVAC Surge protector will also protect refrigeration systems, air handlers, heat pumps, motors and circuit boards. With many of these surge protectors a warranty is also offered to guarantee protection. Often a payout of thousands of dollars is pledged should the surge protector fail to provide protection for your system.
This type of protection cannot be installed by the do-it-yourself plug-in surge protector. It must be installed at the power sources for your HVAC system by a professional. The actual surge protector may be installed in more than one location along the HVAC system’s primary points in your home.
Save your investment and use your HVAC system for years to come by protecting it against power surges. Have HVAC surge protectors installed and never worry about lightning strikes or surges caused by your power company or your home’s appliances. Three hundred surges will occur this year in your home. Be prepared and protect your valuable investments by investing in HVAC surge protectors.
