Important Product Safety Notification : Supco SCM 150 and SCM 60 Surge Protectors

Appleton Campbell is reaching out to our customers to advise of a possible malfunction associated with surge protectors installed on HVAC systems between 2014 and 2015.

It has come to our attention that certain ‘Supco SCM 150’ and ‘Supco SCM 60’ surge protector models supplied by our distributors do not meet the advertised product specifications.

Accordingly, while there is currently no government recall of these surge protectors, Appleton Campbell is encouraging its customers to promptly inspect their HVAC system to determine if a Supco surge protector was installed at their residence. We have included a visual guide to assist you in determining whether your HVAC system includes a ‘Supco SCM 150’ or ‘Supco SCM 60’ surge protector.

In the event you cannot inspect your HVAC system, or if you remain uncertain about the location or brand of surge protector installed on your system, please contact us to schedule a time for us to inspect your HVAC system. We greatly appreciate your business, and look forward to meeting all of your heating and cooling needs.

Delighting Customers Every Day

  • Experienced, helpful and wonderful to work with.

    Thank you for keeping us cool with window A/C units as we waited for our installation during this really hot weather. We are very happy with our new unit and the wonderful team that made it happen.

    Jane T. - Warrenton, VA

    This is an amazing company with 1st class service.

    Another contractor damaged my geothermal loop and my a.c. went down at 2:00 on a Friday with temps in the 90’s. Appleton Campbell sent someone out right away to assess the work needed. The repairs could not be made until Monday but they brought me 2 window unit air conditioners to keep my dogs and I cool over the weekend. So kind!

    Pat S. - Clifton, VA
