  • A power surge occurs when a sudden change in voltage exceeds 120 volts. The wiring in the affected device starts to burn as it overheats. Most modern-day devices have circuitry and microchips, making them more sensitive to changing voltage levels. Even a small power surge can compromise these devices’ performance.

  • The most common reason you may have a power surge is the operation of heavy-duty electrical devices. High-powered electrical devices like dryers and refrigerators need a significant amount of electricity to perform and are more susceptible to power surges. Your appliances with heating elements are also highly sensitive to power surges. Toggling high-power devices and electrical equipment creates significant demands for electricity that often disrupts the constant flow of voltage. The most common causes of power surges include the following:

    • Though it is rare, lighting causes power surges
    • Downed power lines
    • Problems with electrical wiring
    • Utility company’s line, transformer, or components issue

Types of Whole House Surge Protectors


A whole house surge protector protects your appliances and devices from any level of electricity. We typically recommend two or more types of whole-house surge protectors. The three main types of surge protectors include the following:

  • Type 1 Whole House Protection – We install a Type 1 surge protector between your meter and power lines.
  • Type 2 Whole House Protection – A type 2 surge protector is installed between your breaker box and meter.
  • Type 3 Point-of-Use – We can install wall outlet protectors where you plug in your appliances.
  • A whole house surge protector is different from a power strip with multiple devices plugged into it. A small surge protector passes electrical currents from your outlet to the devices in the strip. These power strips only offer limited protection for your devices during a power surge. A whole house surge protector withstands any spike in electricity because it is hard-wired to handle the power.
