What Is a Power Surge?

A power surge happens when a sudden voltage increase exceeds the standard 120 volts. The wiring inside the affected devices overheats and starts to burn. Many electronic devices have circuitry or microchips that make them more sensitive to fluctuating voltage levels. Even a small power surge can put a strain on your technology, destroy the interior, or compromise its performance. A whole home surge protection installation is the best way to protect your devices.

Common Power Surge Causes

Power surges are a common occurrence that can wreak havoc on your home. One of the most common reasons for a power surge is heavy-duty electrical device operation. Some of your home appliances use a significant amount of electricity to switch motors or compressors on and off. Appliances like refrigerators, dryers, and air conditioners have a high demand for electricity that can sometimes interrupt the flow of voltage to your electrical system. Other common causes of power surges include:

  • Faulty electric wiring
  • Power line failure
  • Utility line or transformer issues
  • Lightning

What Is a Surge Protector?

You may have seen a small power strip with multiple outlets. It passes an electric current from your outlets to the devices plugged into the power strip. When a power surge occurs, a surge protector redirects the additional electricity into the power strip's metal oxide varistors (MOVs). The standard household power strips provide limited protection from power surges. Our whole house surge protectors ensure your house's proper level of protection.

How Do Whole House Surge Protectors Work?

Whole house surge protectors work the same way as traditional household surge protectors with a higher level of protection. They can protect all the appliances and devices in your home that receive power from your main electrical panel. Whole house surge protectors are designed to keep your home as safe as possible from electrical surge damage.
