Struck by Lightning!!

Q Late Last Summer, a lightning bolt struck the utility pole in our back yard and fried a second-hand TV set in our den.  Could it have damaged our air conditioner (which also runs on electricity)?
A It definitely could.  In fact, we repair many units each Summer after lightning strikes send a harmful surge of power into a home.  The answer is a surge suppressor, long available for plug-in appliances and now available for central air conditioning units as well.  The suppressor, which must be installed by a professional heating/cooling service person, will save your appliance from practically anything short of a direct lightning strike to the system's outdoor unit.  The cost of this protection is less than the deductible on most homeowner insurance policies, and a whole lot less hassle than filing an insurance claim and having a new cooling unit put in!
