Surge Protectors

Under normal circumstances, electricity flows nice and smooth to power the household items we use daily. However, the truth of the matter is that power surges are very common and are extremely unpredictable. When unprotected, a major appliance such as a HVAC system, washing machines, computers and other important devices can suffer significant damage when a power surge hits. This is why Scottsdale Air Heating & Cooling takes proactive measures to protect our home and commercial customers by installing several quality surge protectors in Scottsdale and Phoenix metro areas.

Scottsdale Air Heating & Cooling has been an Arizona institution for over 65 years. We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional customer service and quality-driven HVAC repairs, maintenance and installation. Working with both commercial and residential customers gives us the flexibility to feel comfortable about completing virtually any AC or heating service needed. When you are looking for surge protection in Scottsdale for your important HVAC unit, you can trust Scottsdale Air to get the job done right – the first time.

There are several quality surge protectors we sell and install to protect you from the unpredictable power surge:


ECM Motor Surge Protector

emc motor surge protectorsAn ECM motor (Electronically Commutated Motor) – also sometimes referred to as a variable speed motor is comprised of three primary components:

  • The motor; which is powered by DC voltage and operates on 110 or 220 volts.
  • The module (or ECM microprocessor); the ‘brains’ of the motor
  • The control board; designed to permit the operator to control the application for the ECM motor.

Each of the three components only work when the power supplied to the system is smooth and consistent. But as we stated above, you simply can’t predict when a power surge will occur. This is where ECM surge protectors come into play to protect these expensive devices. ECM Protectors plug into existing motor connectors or plugs. They help to protect these valuable motors from voltage spikes, surges, and transients that often damage them. Taking proactive measures to install ECM surge protectors in a commercial or residential application is a smart way to protect your electrical devices.
