BEAR Contractors through years of trial and error, recommends having a surge protector installed on your A/C unit. Wether for residential, commercial or light industrial, the cost of installing surge protection is far cheaper, and with much less headaches than a technician informing you that your compressor will need to be replaced. And although nothing can protect against a direct lighting strike, this is one of the many devices to increase the chances of saving our unit against surges, brownouts, and short cycling.
