Protect Your House Against Surge Damage

If you ever tallied up the amount of money you’ve spent on all of the electronics in your house, it might be shocking. After the large investment, you don’t want to put these devices at risk during a power surge. Installing a whole-house surge protector can protect your house from:

  • Lightning strikes. Your home could be at risk if a lightning strike hits up to a mile away. Your homeowner’s insurance policy might not protect you against this possible damage.
  • Increased energy output. Your home’s energy output rises as temperatures get higher, increasing the risk of surge damage.
  • Energy spikes. The average home can get hit with 20 energy spikes a day.

Surge Protectors vs Power Strips

A common misconception about surge protectors is that power strips offer the same protection. However, these do not. Power strips are useful when plugging in electronics in your home. They are an expansion of the wall outlet and typically have a circuit breaker on/off switch. However, these do not protect against electrical surges. For protection against power strikes, you need surge protectors.

What You Need To Know About Whole House Surge Protectors

Whole house surge protectors can protect your electronics from voltage spikes. This can include surges from lightning spikes and even from within your home.

It’s important to hire a licensed technician to install these systems in your house. An expert will need to hard-wire the surge protector to your electrical box. He or she will also need to ensure these are properly grounded so they can work properly.

Installing this in your house can help keep your electronics safe and properly protect your investment.
