A good practice is to have a low voltage circuit breaker installed on your air conditioning or heat pump system. This simple addition can save a homeowner the cost of having to replace low voltage components such as transformers, boards, relays and contactors.
In the case of an electrical current spike on the low voltage side of the circuit, the circuit breaker will fail interrupting the circuit and saving the low voltage components. Although a call to your local HVAC service technician will still be necessary, the cost to remedy the situation will be significantly less than the cost to replace an electrical component or components.
