Surge protectors are safety devices that help guard against high voltages so that a system isn’t damaged or burnt up. Surge protectors work by diverting the excess voltage to ground. These are necessary because of growing power grids and more electronic controls that are sensitive to voltage variations. Because many HVAC-R systems use 3-phase power, surge protection is needed in conjunction with 3-phase line voltage monitors (or just “phase monitors” for short) because one or the other by itself is not enough. The surge protectors divert high voltage to ground while phase monitors shut the system off whenever there are variable voltages or faulty phasing.
Service and Repair
At BIMS, our team of highly trained service technicians is available 24/7 to ensure your surge protectors are repaired quickly and correctly. We pride ourselves on giving quality service that is focused on ensuring longevity of the whole system, optimizing efficiency, and centering on the source of the problems versus only alleviating symptoms. Much like a doctor, we want to treat what’s causing the fever rather than only treat the fever.
We also understand how precious keeping a business in operation is. Thus, if something goes wrong, we will work with you to get the problem resolved so that “down-time” is kept to a minimum. If, worst case scenario, the surge protectors needs replacing, our team will work diligently to ensure the process is as flawless and as quick as possible. For any issue, BIMS has access to a vast network of distributors for parts and equipment (including those hard to find).
Keep your surge protector performing at its optimal level and help ensure its long life by having it properly maintained. This preventive maintenance keeps the system operating at peak efficiency, minimizes unnecessary repairs and down-time, and helps keep energy costs low. This service keeps your system clean and in good working order. It also helps prevent smaller problems from becoming larger, more costly problems.
With preventive maintenance, we like to partner with our clients in order to provide options best for the situation and create custom solutions that fit your needs. We understand the importance and adverse effects of having an operation down in the commercial/industrial realm and will thus work on comprehensive, systemic solutions to keep you up and running.
