  • What is a Power Surge?

    A power surge is an abrupt and considerable voltage escalation above an electrical system's designated level. While this excess can last just a few milliseconds, its potential to damage or destroy your home electronics, appliances, and wiring is substantial. Unlike the normal fluctuations in electrical supply, which average around 120 volts, power surges can be upwards of thousands to tens of thousands of volts and instantaneously overload and short out the circuitry of electronic devices, leading to costly damages and potentially hazardous fire risks.

  • What Causes a Power Surge?

    Power surges originate from both external and internal sources. Externally, lightning strikes are the most dramatic cause, potentially introducing massive amounts of electrical energy into a home’s wiring instantly. Utility grid issues, such as power outages, grid switching, or equipment failures, also contribute to surges. Internally, surges often occur when high-demand appliances, such as air conditioners and heating systems, cycle on and off, which causes an interruption of the steady flow of electricity and creates surges that can affect the entire home.

What is a Whole-House Surge Protector, and How Does it Work?

A whole-house surge protector is a device that is installed directly into your electrical panel. It is designed to safeguard your entire electrical system against the damaging effects of surges. It works by continuously monitoring the incoming electricity. When it detects voltage that exceeds the normal threshold, it diverts the excess electricity to the ground and away from your home’s circuitry. This not only protects your electronics from direct surges, including those from lightning and grid issues but also guards against the cumulative damage from smaller, internal surges, thereby extending the life and efficiency of your appliances and sensitive electronic devices.
