Surge Protectors for HVAC Systems

It’s one of your biggest investments - and you probably never even think about it.

HVAC Surge Protectors

Protect your HVAC system from lightning strikes with a surge protector

There’s a reason that Tampa takes its name from an Indian word for “lightning.”

We’re used to thunderstorms and lightning around here because they’re such a regular occurrence. Storms push through with no warning, shaking the trees and flooding our yards, sometimes with a pyrotechnics display thrown in for free.

In fact, we’re so used to it that protecting our sensitive electronic appliances from a lightning strike is second-nature. We plug our computers and TVs into surge protectors - or we unplug them as soon as the lightning starts.

But how are you going to unplug your A/C system?

It’s just as vulnerable as your computer, but several times more expensive. It makes no sense at all to leave it unprotected from the elements - but you’d be surprised how many people do exactly that, even though HVAC surge protectors are easy to get and cheap to install.

It’s even more absurd when you consider how much a surge protector actually costs: usually less than $150. And since events like these aren’t always covered by homeowner’s insurance, the smart choice is clear.

The simple installation of an inexpensive surge protector could help you avoid a major headache and save you thousands of dollars in repair or replacement costs.

We can help. Call Easy A/C at 813-COLD-AIR to talk about your options for protecting this expensive and sensitive piece of machinery from the hostile climate we live in.
