Although summertime is a season we all look forward to for beach trips and family vacations, enduring the heat during staycations can be difficult. With so many air conditioners running, it’s almost certain the electrical grid will max out at some point, making power surges even more common. To help you prepare for the surges, here’s a list of the causes:
- Fluctuating demand from appliances such as fans and air conditioners
- Defective or damaged power lines following storms
- Faulty power lines and poor air conditioning maintenance
- Overvoltages from the utility company due to demand
Protect Your Home
We recommend the installation of surge protectors on HVAC equipment and all major appliances inside and outside the home. These protectors look like a power strip but divert excess electricity to the outlet’s ground wire to shield your appliance.
While this can be costly, here’s a tip: install a whole-house surge protector. These are much cheaper than purchasing multiple protectors, and are guaranteed to protect all your appliances at once. Make sure that you use it to guard your devices against damage from any future power surges and possible air conditioning repair.
Prevent power surges from harming your HVAC system. The best option of all is to call a team of specialists to assist you with inspection and surge protection installation. Keeping it running optimally can instantly save you money and improve efficiency in the long run.
