How does a surge protector help my air conditioner?

How does a surge protector help my air conditioner?

How does a surge protector help my air conditioner?

Want to make your air conditioner last longer? Have a surge protector installed.

This is especially important during the Arizona summer when electricity can increase to rates not easily handled by standard wiring. When this happens, components of the air conditioner can be destroyed, increasing the risk for fire in your home.

What is a power surge?

Electricity can be tricky to explain. To simplify, let’s think about a pipe. When too much water flows through, the pipe bursts. It’s the same for electricity. Our homes and air conditioners are only wired for a certain level of electricity, known as voltage.

Most people think a power surge, an increase of voltage, happens when lightning strikes. While this is true, power can surge at any time. In the Phoenix area in the summer, it is especially common as we are using a lot of power to keep ourselves cool. When the power changes, there can be spikes, or surges, to voltage. They only last a split second, but can cause a lot of damage, including to your air conditioner.

How does a surge protector help?

A surge protector detects excess voltage and can send it to a grounding wire rather than through the air conditioner. It is a black box that gets wired into the electrical part of the air conditioning system. When a surge of electricity occurs, the device shuts off the electricity in the air conditioner, saving the compressor and motor.

Please Note: Because it deals with high voltage, a surge protector must be installed by a licensed technician.

At John’s Refrigeration, we want you to be comfortable in your home, especially in the instance of a power surge, which is why we recommend a surge protector. It can not only save your air conditioner but your home and family, too. Contact us today to learn more.
