HVAC System Safety Package

Your heating and cooling system is the largest and most expensive mechanical system in your home. It helps regulate, not only the temperature in your home, but also the humidity and indoor air quality. It is extremely important and is generally fairly expensive to replace.

Protect your HVAC system with our exclusive System Safety Package. The components it includes helps protect against common things that can go wrong in your home.

  • Surge Protector
    • Protects your AC system from power surges, brownouts, and blackouts
    • Avoid expensive AC replacements due to electrical surges.
  • Drain Overflow Protector
    • Reduce or prevent water damage
    • Prevent dangerous mold growth
    • Save money on costly repairs
  • Compressor Start Assist
    • Help your AC compressor start up to 10 times faster and more efficiently
    • Give your AC compressor an electrical boost upon startup
    • Extend the life of your HVAC system

Why Surge Protectors Are Vital For HVAC Systems

Is your AC safe from brownouts and power surges?

It’s hard to fully explain the importance of electronics and appliances in our lives today. We are surrounded by electrical equipment constantly. The typical home contains many different appliances.

Despiste their variety, most of these appliances have one thing in common - a need for a steady, uninterrupted electrical current. This can be a problem when imperfect power grids endanger the appliances you’ve come to rely on.

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, power disturbances cost homeowners $79 billion each year. Why? Power surges, brownouts, and blackouts affect all appliances equally. If a power surge fries your coffeemaker, you might replace it right away, but what about if it knocks out your central AC system?

Homeowners would be wise to protect their investment in air conditioning, particularly give the fact that a power disturbance may strike at any time.

The only reliable way to protect your home’s HVAC system is to use a surge protector. The surge protector is designed to take the hit so your air conditioning equipment doesn’t have to.

With a surge protector standing guard of the electrical current running to your system, you can avoid the hassle and expense of AC replacement.

What Is A Drain Overflow Protection System?

What is it and do you need one?

Why Does An AC Need A Drain?

Just like dew on a cooling morning, your AC coils inside your home collect water as they are typically below the dew point. The water on the coils collects in a drain pan on its way to go down the drain pipe.

Why Do Clogs Occur?

When water dries it leaves behind dirt, this can collect and clog the pipe. Dirt that bypasses the filter can collect on the coil then end up in the drain. Buildups can also occur from rust from the metal oxidizing over time.

What Is A Drain Alert?

An HVAC Drain Alert, also known as a wet switch/float or a condensate overflow switch, serves to prevent the drop pan from overflowing if the AC drain develops a clog.

The switch is activated when the level of the water in the pan becomes a hazard, causing the switch mechanism to trip/float to rise. When this happens, the switch will then send a message to the AC unit, and it will shut off, stopping the cooling process and creation of condensation.

Why Do I Need A Drain Alert?

It’s critical to have a drain alert in order to:

  • Reduce or prevent water damage
  • Prevent dangerous mold growth
  • Save money on costly repairs

What Is An HVAC Compressor Start Assist?

Does your Air Conditioner need a compressor start assist?

More strain is placed upon the system during startup than any other time. The longer the system takes to start, the more wear and tear can happen to your equipment. A compressor start assist reduces the time it takes for the compressor to start and eases the strain on the system.

Did you know it takes 4 to 8 times more electrical current to start your central AC unit than is required to run it? The excess heat generated during startup is damaging to your central air conditioning system compressor. A compressor start assist can benefit you if:

  •     You want to extend the life of your HVAC system
  •     Your air conditioning system is aging
  •     You have a home generator
  •     You have low voltage or inconsistent voltage
  •     Lights dim when your AC unit starts
  •     Your Compressor won’t start consistently
  •     Your AC system has a fixed orifice metering device
  •     You have multiple AC units running at once
  •     Your air conditioner trips a breaker on startup
  •     You have long refrigerant line sets

A Compressor Start Assist is designed to give your air conditioning compressor an electrical boost on startup.

What does a Compressor Start Assist do?

The Compressor Start Assist adds a start capacitor to help overcome the mechanical inertia during startup. Once the system is started, the Compressor Start Assist disengages and the system operates normally.

How does an HVAC Compressor Start Assist work?

The electrical boost of a Compressor Start Assist provides greater starting torque and reduces the duration of inrush current to the single-phase compressor.
