  • A power surge or voltage spike occurs suddenly and increases voltage that exceeds 120 volts. The result can fry your electrical system, leaving one or many of your electronic devices damaged or useless. Refrigerators, smart TVs, HVAC systems, computers, and anything plugged into an outlet is at risk. While there are individual surge protectors you can plug into an outlet, they are limited to protecting only the devices plugged directly into them. It only takes a slight power surge to do drastic damage.

  • One of the most dramatic causes of electrical surges is a lightning strike. When lightning hits a power line, it can send an enormous surge of electrical energy into the grid, affecting nearby homes and businesses. Lightning-induced surges can be particularly destructive. Besides lighting, there are several other potential causes, including the following:

    • Power Grid Fluctuations: The power grid can sometimes experience voltage fluctuations. Various factors, including power company operations, load changes, or issues with the transmission and distribution lines, can cause these. While power companies work diligently to maintain stable voltage levels, occasional fluctuations may occur.
    • Switching of High-Powered Electrical Devices: When large electrical appliances or equipment, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, or industrial machinery, turn on or off, they can create electrical surges. This is because the initial power demand when these devices start or stop can momentarily strain the electrical system.
    • Power Outages and Restorations: Sometimes, power surges can happen when electricity is restored after an outage. The initial rush of power when the grid is reenergized can result in a surge.

What is a Whole House Surge Protector?

A whole-house surge protector is a device created to protect your home from voltage spikes. Unlike traditional surge protectors installed at individual outlets or power strips, a whole-house surge protector is typically installed at the main electrical panel of your building. Once installed by your Mr. Electric of Concord professional, this device provides comprehensive protection to your entire home and all electronic devices plugged into your system. A whole house surge protector works to divert the electrical voltage spike away from your system and safely ground it so it does not cause any damage.

The Benefits of Whole House Surge Protection

One of the most remarkable aspects of a whole house surge protector is that it is not one-and-done. Whole house surge protectors can handle multiple surge events and remain functional. They are designed to protect your electrical system even after diverting surges, making them a reliable defense against various sources of surges.

By preventing voltage surges from entering your building's electrical system, whole-house surge protectors enhance safety and reduce the risk of electrical fires, appliance damage, and data loss. This provides vital peace of mind to homeowners like you, knowing that your property is shielded against the potential hazards of power surges.
