Intermatic debuts air conditioner/heat pump Compressor Defender™ The only all-in-one power protection against brownouts, power surges, and short cycles

| February 14, 2014

Spring Grove, Ill., February 13, 2014 – Intermatic Incorporated, a leader in energy management and HVACR solutions, introduced Compressor Defender, an all-in-one protection device for high-cost air conditioner/heat pump compressors and system electronics.

The Compressor Defender device takes the hit from power disturbances, preventing damage to integrated circuit boards in air conditioners/heat pumps. It protects these vital and expensive system components from brownouts (under voltages), power surges, and has integrated short-cycle protection.

Protecting customer’s high-cost air conditioner systems can save contractors thousands of dollars by reducing nuisance callbacks, unnecessary service calls, and out-of-warranty costs.

“The Compressor Defender not only keeps customers’ compressors and system electronics safe, but also keeps contractors’ bottom lines healthy,” said Brian Lamberty, Intermatic Product Marketing Manager for the HVACR division. “It is a necessary preventive maintenance solution for the integrated circuit boards in these systems that can easily be added to any maintenance program.”

Designed for residential and light commercial use, the Compressor Defender device protects motors and circuit boards in central air conditioning systems, ductless mini-splits, packaged terminal systems, and heat pumps.

It can be installed inside a condensing unit or externally on an AC disconnect in just ten minutes. Once it is installed, the Compressor Defender automatically adjusts the input voltage, eliminating the need to reset the voltage. The device is also compliant with the AHRI standard 110-1012.

With the Compressor Defender on hand, contractors can grow their credibility and profitability and solidify customer relationships.
