That's why the professionals at Mr. Electric of Midland and Odessa offer whole house surge protector installation services in Midland and Odessa, TX. We can install a whole house surge protector to successfully keep power surges from destroying your electronics and appliances.
What Is a Power Surge?
Electricity travels along a series of wires from a power plant to your home or business. During its journey, it may be exposed to dangerous conditions such as lightning strikes or downed power lines, which can cause a surge in electricity flow. This sudden increase in voltage is called a "power surge." During a power surge, excess voltage burns through your wiring and into your devices and appliances. This can cause permanent damage, meaning you'll have to replace whatever has been affected. This goes for anything plugged in, including computers, tablets, TVs, and lamps. By installing a whole house surge protector, you won't have to lose sleep over the possibility of a power surge ruining your valuable electronics.
What Causes Power Surges?
While lightning can cause a power surge, that's far from common. Most power surges come from overusing heavy-duty appliances with high electrical demands. Things like air conditioners and refrigerators use a lot of energy, which can lead to unexpected power surges when your circuits get overloaded. In addition to high electrical usage, it's also possible for power surges to result from downed power lines in your community or faulty wiring in your home or business. If you suspect your wiring is defective, call us immediately, and we'll investigate the issue.
What Is a Surge Protector?
Surge protectors are designed to keep power surges from overloading circuits and frying appliances. When a surge protector detects an abnormal rise in voltage, it redirects the extra electricity to metal oxide varistors (MOVs). Household power strips are one of the most common types of surge protectors, but they are nowhere near as effective as whole house surge protectors. These strips can only protect whatever is plugged in and usually only last for a single power surge. That's why it's safest to have us install whole house surge protectors. These protect every device in your home or business from multiple power surges over the years.
How Does a Surge Protector Work?
The technology used in household surge protectors is also present in whole house surge protectors, but it is adapted to handle a much higher payload. Household power strips are standalone devices plugged into a single outlet, and whole house surge protectors are hardwired directly into a property's main electrical panel. This means that anything plugged in will be protected in the event of a power surge.
