BelRed Energy Solutions has been advised by SUPCO, Inc., of a potential safety hazard with surge protectors installed on HVAC systems between 2010 and 2014.
Some models of the ‘Supco SCM 150’ and ‘Supco SCM 60’ surge protectors supplied by the distributor do not meet specifications. These surge protectors are prone to overheating, posing a potential fire hazard over time. We urge our customers to inspect their systems as soon as possible. If you find that your HVAC system has a Supco SCM 150 or SCM 60 installed, contact a licensed HVAC contractor like BelRed for immediate replacement. DO NOT attempt to remove a surge protector yourself – only a licensed HVAC contractor and/or licensed electrician should remove the unit.
While there is no government mandated recall for these surge protectors, and although BelRed is not responsible for the defective products, we care about the safety of our customers and want to alert our community of this potential hazard. BelRed can help provide:

- Free removal of units installed by BelRed
- Free removal and 50% off replacement of Supco surge protectors for current or new customers, with a one-year BelRed warranty on the new surge protector – no additional discounts or offers apply
