Whole house surge protection safeguards your expensive appliances from being destroyed by an electric surge. To provide you with this security, we can install a surge protector in your home.
There are a number of reasons why power quality has become such an important issue. Today’s computer chips are more sensitive to even slight surges, and most homes and offices are using more equipment than ever before. Each time a device is turned on, transient voltages may be generated. Additionally, more microprocessor technology is being used than ever before, in personal computers, TVs, stereos, gaming systems, DVRs, refrigerators, washers, dryers, microwave ovens, dishwashers and just about any electrical device manufactured today.
Internal surges occur when devices with motors (like refrigerators and hair dryers) shut off. The energy these devices were consuming is suddenly redirected elsewhere in the form of excess voltage. Surges can also occur when the power company switches power from one geographic area of the grid to another to meet system demand. And, thunderstorms and lightening are the most dramatic and destructive causes of power line problems and electric surges.
