Disconnect/ Safety Switch
HVAC Power Disconnect/ Safety Switch: Replacing damaged, corroded or malfunctioning electrical safety switches.
Every piece of HVAC equipment (i.e., package units and split systems) have a have an electrical safety switch that is required to operate and safely energize/de-energize the equipment for servicing and/or repair. We operate these switches on a normal basis during servicing, Preventative Maintenance and/or during a Due-Diligence Survey.
Not replacing these switches when they are found damaged, corroded or malfunctioning in general is extremely unsafe.
