Surge Safety

Dec 21, 2020 | Panel Upgrade, Residential Electric

You’ve probably heard of surge protectors. Those handy power strips that are supposed to protect a select few devices. But, did you know, we can install a surge protector for your entire house?

It’s not just for Christmas convenience, when we have those extra decorations plugged in everywhere. Home surge protectors shield your home from a variety of electrical surges including:

  • Home Appliances (major appliances cycling on and off throughout the day account for 60%-80% of power surges in the home.)
  • Downed Power Lines
  • Lightning (there are more than 20 million cloud to ground strikes in a year and damages are nor often covered by homeowner’s insurance.)

The average home experiences 20 power surges a day. Having a home surge protector working in the background is a cost effective way to protect your home and belongings.

Since those surge protector power strips you’re using only protect against one type of power surge, they should really be paired with a whole home surge protector to ensure surge safety. These home protectors are hardwired to your home’s electrical panel and redirect excess current safely to the ground. Before it has a chance to run into your home! Whole home surge protectors need to be installed by a professional electrician and it takes us about 2 hours to install. The price of installation depends on the size of the house. (We offer monthly payments through financing!)

The average home has about $10,000 worth of electrical appliances and devices in it. A serious surge can take out TVs, Computers, Washers and Dryers, Microwaves, Ovens, and more! Let’s make sure your home is protected. Give us a call!
