  • Understanding what power surges are can help you realize the importance of investing in whole-house surge protector installation for your home in Central Kentucky, Lexington, or Versailles, KY. A power surge can occur with a sudden increase in voltage substantially exceeding 120 volts. During a power surge, the wiring inside your electronic devices will overheat and begin to burn. Most families own a plethora of electronic devices, including computers, televisions, microwaves, phones, stereos, and more. Don’t put these valuable devices at risk without whole-house surge protectors. Many modern gadgets contain microchips or circuitry that is extremely sensitive to voltage fluctuations. Power surges can put a strain on your electronics and compromise their performance while sometimes destroying them altogether.

  • The surge protectors you buy online or in a big box store are not as effective as whole house surge protectors. Knowing the differences between these types of whole house surge protectors could save your valuable investments from being destroyed. In most cases, the cost of whole house surge protectors is a sound investment because you won’t have to replace those expensive electronics after they get fried from a power surge. Another reason it makes sense to invest in whole house surge protectors is that you’ll have to replace your power strips after every power surge. Those power strips pass electric current from electrical outlets to any devices plugged into the strip. When a spike or surge happens, the surge protector will redirect extra electricity into a component of the power strip known as metal oxide varistors.

  • Whole house surge protectors operate on the same basic principle as cheaper surge protectors, but the superior versions are able to withstand several power surges without needing to be replaced. Whole home surge protectors will protect all your household appliances and devices from damage due to electrical surges. Mr. Electric of Central Kentucky’s licensed and insured electricians install whole house surge protectors safely and efficiently to give you peace of mind and protect your belongings.

What Causes Power Surges?

Power surges can occur for multiple reasons, with one of the most common being everyday operation of your heavy-duty electronic devices. Larger appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and clothes dryers require a significant amount of electricity to turn their compressors or motors off and on. Other possible causes of power surges include:

  • Downed power lines
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Lighting strikes, although rare
  • Problems with the utility company’s equipment, lines, or transformers
  • No, a surge protector is not an energy-saving device. It acts as a gatekeeper, ensuring that any excess electrical energy surges are blocked and diverted away from your devices. The surge protector's sole purpose is to safeguard against voltage spikes and prevent potential damage to your valuable equipment.
