  • You need to know what a power surge is to protect your valuable devices against a power surge. A power surge can happen when your home has a sudden voltage increase, significantly exceeding the standard 120 volts. During a power surge, the wiring inside your devices can overheat and start to burn. With the amount of technology on the market today, some of your devices at risk of damage include computers, televisions, stereos, phones, microwaves, and many other essential and pricy gadgets. Many of your electronic devices have microchips or circuitry, making them incredibly sensitive to voltage fluctuations. Getting a whole house surge protection installation from Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie is the best way to protect your valued devices. Even the slightest power surge can do the following:

    • Put a strain on your devices
    • Compromise their performance
    • Destroy them
  • Now that you understand what power surges are in your home, it’s important to know what causes them. Normally operating heavy-duty electrical devices is one of the most common reasons power surges occur. Some of these devices require a significant amount of electricity to turn their motors or compressors on or off, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and clothes dryers. These high-powered appliances create high electricity demands, disrupting your home’s electrical system’s constant flow of voltage. The following examples are potential causes of power surges:

    • Downed power lines.
    • Faulty electric wiring.
    • Issues with utility company’s lines, transformers, and other equipment.
    • Although rare, lightning sometimes causes power surges. This phenomenon increases electrical pressure by millions of volts and overwhelms even the most effective power strip surge protector.

What Are Surge Protectors?

Most homeowners commonly imagine a power strip with various devices plugged into it when thinking of a surge protector. A surge protector works by passing electric current from an electrical outlet to any devices you plug into a power strip. When a spike surge happens that exceeds a designated level, the surge protector will automatically redirect all extra electricity into a part of the power strip called metal oxide varistors (MOVs). Household power strips you buy online or at a retail location offer limited protection for your devices, and you often need to replace them after any power surges happen. To protect your devices and appliances, the best thing is to install a whole-house surge protector.
