What Is an HVAC Surge Protector?
An HVAC surge protector protects your HVAC system from electrical surges, which can be caused by numerous things, such as lightning and random utility occurrences. Not only can those surges damage your HVAC equipment, but they can also harm your household electronics—and a lot of standard homeowners insurance policies won’t cover it. An HVAC surge protector essentially acts as insurance for your HVAC system.
How Does an HVAC Surge Protector Protect Your Home?
A surge protector redirects high voltage surges, like those from lightning, into the ground and away from your HVAC system. Even internal surges (like those from household appliances) can cause damage to your HVAC system, and while these surges will most likely be small, over time they can affect the motors in your AC unit and shorten the lifespan of your system.
