As Florida homeowners, you probably know that lightning storms are a fact of life. However, you may not realize the damage that these and other electrical events can wreak on your home’s HVAC system. Here are a few tips for protecting your HVAC system—and your family—from a power surge from your Tampa air conditioning service professionals.:
Purchase a new HVAC system if there’s severe damage after a power surge has occurred.
Power surges can cause serious damage to your home’s HVAC system. Along with blown fuses and burnt wires, surges often result in costly damage to the system compressor and can make your HVAC unit less effective. In some cases, replacing your heating and AC system after a power surge may be necessary to protect your family’s health and safety throughout the year.
Install whole-home HVAC surge protectors at the main breaker boxes.
Utilizing a surge protector is one of the best ways to keep your HVAC system safe during an electrical event. Installed at the main breaker boxes, whole-home surge protectors work by buffering extra electricity and safeguarding your AC against voltage surges. As an added bonus, a whole-home system will preserve your TVs, computers and sound systems as well.
Contact a Del-Air professional expert to assess your system and determine the required level of surge-protector protection for your HVAC.
While surge protection is crucial to extending the lifespan of your HVAC unit, it can be difficult to select the right surge-protector level for your home. When you contact Del-Air for your HVAC needs, we will sit down with you to discuss the different protection types, including power strips, surge stations and uninterruptable power supplies, and choose the best option for your home.
