Surge Protection in Tampa

A power surge poses a massive threat to the health of your HVAC unit. A malfunction in a transformer or transmission line, a lightning strike, a falling tree in a storm, or power grid switching can send a blast of high voltage electricity into your unit – ending its life, or in the best case, leading to expensive repairs.

Protect Your Investment with Surge Protection

The arc of high voltage electrical current in the unit heats the internal electronic components, frying them. The systems that cools and heats your home needs electricity to function, but when a power surge is more than the unit can handle, the damage is done. 

Surge protection can be installed to help you protect your investment. Even when the utility company was responsible for the power surge, they will not pay to repair your system and you get stuck with the bill. Why not ensure your system is safe with surge protection added to your system – it can save you thousands for repairs or replacing a unit.

How Does Power Surge Protection Work?

A full home surge protection device can protect all the electric and electronic devices in your home, including your heating and air conditioning units. When a power surge occurs, the excess electrical energy flows into a grounding device, not your valuable heating and cooling units and the other electric and electronic devices in your home. 

At The Comfort Authority, we have been called upon to repair countless HVAC units damaged by power surges, and we don’t want this to happen to you. Our talented, friendly technicians can come by and explain how surge protection can be added to your system and efficiently and correctly install surge protection. 

Internal or External Power Surges

Internal power surges can occur due to a faulty circuit breaker box, older or incorrectly installed wiring, or other internal problem. External surges are more likely, especially in the Tampa Bay area, where lightning, wind, and rainstorms frequently occur. 

Many advanced AC units are equipped with specialized electronics for more efficient cooling, but the components can be damaged when too much voltage flows in. If your heating and air systems are not protected, you could be facing the cost of replacing the system, pricey circuits, or other internal components.

To protect your investment, and ensure it functions in every season, our team at The Comfort Authority can add surge protection to your system. We serve all of Tampa Bay as well as Wesley Chapel, St. Pete, and the surrounding areas.
