How Can Surge Protectors Protect Your HVAC Appliances

Power surges last for just a few millionths of as second, but they can cause serious damage to any electronics in your home.

What many homeowners don’t realize is that surge protectors can protect more than just your computer. Surge protectors can protect all of the electronics in your home – including your HVAC system!

When a power surge goes through your home, these spikes and surges can reduce the efficiency and life expectancy of your appliances. They can burn them out and fry their circuits. That’s why it’s so important that you protect your HVAC system (just as you would your other electronic devices) with a surge protector.

Surge protectors help protect your heater or air conditioner from damage from power surges. The best way to protect your electronics is with a whole-house suppressor. This will keep big, dangerous power spikes at bay. The second option is an individual circuit or plug-in surge suppressor. You can plug your individual electronics into this to protect them from frying during a power surge.
