Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2019 -- This month, the team over at Squeaks Plumbing & Heating is taking the opportunity to educate the public about how they can protect their AC systems from power surges caused during summer lightning storms.
As is well known, power surges induced by lightning strikes can cause damage to any home appliances that are plugged in. This is true even if the electronic device in question is powered off. However, turning off one's air conditioning, in addition to other appliances, can still help homeowners guard their units against possible damage, making them less vulnerable than electronics that are running at the moment of a power surge.
Furthermore, Squeaks Plumbing & Heating suggests that by switching off the AC power at the breaker, one separates the plugs from the remainder of the electrical system, further helping one's AC system avoid overloads in the midst of power surges. In some circumstances, there may be fuses or a breaker found at the disconnect switch outside by the condenser. The specific setup and model might even allow homeowners to turn off the power there, although homeowners are directed to exercise great caution during stormy weather.
Lastly, Squeaks Plumbing & Heating emphasizes that the installation of a high-quality surge protector can go a long way in protecting one's AC system.
