What Creates a Power Surge?
Commonly associated with storms, electricity surges can happen for several reasons. A lightning strike isn’t the most common cause of a power surge—most power surges originate inside your home when appliances and devices draw excess current.
When a power surge travels through your electrical system, all its components and anything plugged in may be negatively impacted by excessive voltage. Have you ever thought about how many devices in your home plug into electrical outlets that are susceptible to power surges?
Appliances, computers, smartphones—none of these items come cheap. A power surge has the potential to render these items useless.
You could be out thousands of dollars in replacement costs resulting from a single surge. Whole-house surge protectors provide an added layer of protection to prevent such a loss from taking place. Protect your electronics and appliances by calling the electricians at MB Heating and Cooling today! Schedule an appointment online for a free consultation.
How Does a Surge Protector Work?
A whole-house surge protector installs in your home’s electrical service box, providing coverage for the entire electrical system and everything connected to it. When a power surge is detected, the whole-house surge protector can block excessive current from traveling through your electrical system. Excess current is diverted into the ground via the surge protector’s grounding connection.
Whole-house surge protectors provide a critical safety net of coverage beyond what protectors plugged into outlets can do. Most of your home’s costlier appliances, like heating and cooling systems, cannot use plug-in surge protection.
While it is OK to use plug-in protectors for added protection, a whole-house surge protector should be your main line of defense against electricity surge damage.
Our certified electricians at MB Heating and Cooling offer professional whole-house surge protector installation. We provide accurate upfront quotes, financing options, along with quality service and great results at a fair price! Schedule your appointment today to upgrade all your home comfort systems.
