Surge Protection

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.



The Compressor Defender is the only all-in-one under voltage and surge power protection device on the HVAC Market, providing protection for central A/C and heat pump condensing units and their associated motors, controls, and components—both electronic and mechanical. It can be installed inside the condensing unit or externally on the outdoor A/C disconnect. Auto sense voltage technology protects at any voltage from 120-240 VAC, making it an ideal solution for residential or light commercial installations. Trusted, state-of-the-art TPMOV® (Thermally Protected Metal Oxide Varistor) surge protection technology eliminates the potentially hazardous failure modes that are associated with standard MOV technology. The device is also designed with integrated, 3-minute short cycle time delay protection.
