Whole Home Surge Protection

A power surge happens faster than the time it takes to blink your eyes, but in that millisecond the spike in electricity can have big consequences. The Insurance Information Institute estimates that power surges and lightning strikes cause approximately $1 billion in damages to American homeowners each year. Fortunately, there’s an inexpensive way to protect yourself from surges and spikes resulting from lighting strikes, downed power lines, or cycling appliances – a whole home surge protector.

Surge Protection

What is a whole home surge protector?

Simply put, a whole house surge protector protects all the appliances in your home from voltage spikes, limiting excess electrical current by blocking its flow or shorting it to ground, much like a pressure relief valve. This includes surges occurring not only from lightning, but the 60-80 percent of surges that occur from within your home – typically from major appliances cycling on and off. With all of today’s electronics, you simply can’t afford not to protect your home with a whole house surge protector.

Where is a whole home surge protector installed?

Whole house surge protectors are typically hard-wired to your electrical box. Proper installation is essential. A whole house surge protector must be properly grounded, since without proper ground even the best surge protector will be unable to perform its job.

What does a whole home surge protector protect?

Electronics and appliances are sitting ducks for power surges generated by lightning strikes and spikes in the grid. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much of a power surge to destroy sensitive (and expensive) electronic devices and appliances. A professionally installed whole-house surge protection device can protect your most expensive belongings from electrical damage. And trust us, the cost to have an electrician install a surge protector is a lot less than the cost to buy a new television, computer, or next-gen gaming system.

Spikes and surges in the grid can also take a toll on your home’s electrical system. Depending on the strength and duration of the spike, a power surge may blow your service panel or even cause damage to the electrical wiring inside your walls. A whole-house surge protection device can help you avoid needing electrical repairs due to power surge damage.

Will a whole home surge protector help prevent power outages?

Although it’s rare for power surges to cause power outages, large enough surges in the grid can certainly be strong enough to leave your home in the dark. A professionally installed whole-home surge protection device will serve as a first line of defense against power outages resulting from powerful spikes and surges in the electrical delivery service.
