There's a lot of history in that area. I went to UF and lived in G'ville for 9 years. I'm down in Tampa now.Took my Brother-in-law to lunch at Pearl's Country store and BBQ in beautiful historic Micanopy, Fl. Brisket is outstanding, and the baked beans are like candy!
As you found out the hard way Circuit boards are not cheap ! I would recommend you add a Surge Protector to your Heat Pump! I have a Intermatic AG3000 on my Heat Pump and my HWH Heat pump ! They are maybe $60.00/$75.00 Range each + or-We went to Lowes (my truck and I) to get a new home thermostat, because the heat pump stop working, now the HVAC guy says the circuit board is bad and it will cost me $300. Now she is back in the garage for another few days until the next mission essential trip into the danger zone
