  • Power surges happen when there’s a sudden increase in voltage, substantially exceeding the standard 120 volts. During a power surge, the wiring inside your devices can overheat and burn. Some of the devices that could be at risk of being damaged or destroyed during a power surge include computers, phones, microwaves, stereos, and many other important gadgets you have in your home. Many of today’s electronics also feature microchips or circuitry, making them even more sensitive to voltage fluctuations.

    The most effective way to protect your belongings is by scheduling whole-house surge protection installation services with the experts at Mr. Electric of Allegan, Kalamazoo, Ottawa & Van Buren Counties. Even the slightest power surge on your residential property can strain your devices, compromise their performance and efficiency, or destroy them.

  • Power surges often occur due to heavy-duty appliances in your home creating higher demands for electricity, which can disrupt the electrical flow of your home’s electrical system. High-powered devices that require a significant amount of electricity to switch their motors or compressors on or off include dryers, refrigerators, and air conditioners. Some of the other causes of power surges can include:

    • Downed power lines in your area
    • Faulty electric wiring in your home
    • Problems with your utility company’s lines, transformers, or other equipment
    • Lightening (although rare)

What Are Surge Protectors?

Surge protectors pass electric current from an electrical outlet to any devices plugged into the power strip. When a surge or spike above a designated level happens, the surge protector will automatically redirect any extra electricity into a part of the power strip called metal oxide varistors (MOVs). Power strips you can purchase at a retail location offer limited protection for your devices and typically need to be replaced after a power surge occurs. Having a whole house surge protector professionally installed is the best way to protect your devices.

How Do Whole House Surge Protectors Work?

Whole house surge protectors work the same way as other surge protectors, but they’re designed to withstand several power surges over several years. Whole home surge protectors also protect all your devices and appliances that receive power from your electrical panel. Attempting to install a whole house surge protector is dangerous and can damage your electrical system. Leave the installation of your surge protector to the electrical experts at Mr. Electric of Allegan, Kalamazoo, Ottawa & Van Buren Counties.
