  • To protect your valuable devices against a power surge, you should understand what a power surge is. A power surge can occur with a sudden increase in voltage, substantially exceeding the standard 120 volts. During a power surge, the wiring inside devices will overheat and begin to burn. With so much technology available today, some of your devices that are at risk include computers, televisions, phones, stereos, microwaves, and many other important and expensive gadgets. Many of your electronic devices feature microchips or circuitry that makes them especially sensitive to voltage fluctuations. The best way to protect your valued devices is through whole house surge protection installation from Mr. Electric of Paulding County. Even the slightest power surge can do the following:

    • Put a strain on your devices
    • Compromise their performance
    • Destroy them

The Causes of Power Surges

Now that you know what power surges are, it’s important to understand what causes power surges. One of the most common reasons power surges occur is because of the normal operation of heavy-duty electrical devices. Some of the devices that require a significant amount of electricity to switch their compressors or motors on or off include air conditioners, refrigerators, and clothes dryers. These high-powered appliances create high demands for electricity, disrupting the constant flow of voltage to your home’s electrical system. Check out the following 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.
  • Most homeowners are likely to picture a power strip with multiple devices plugged into it when they think of a surge protector. A surge protector works by passing electric current from an electrical outlet to any devices plugged into the power strip. When a surge or spike above a designated level happens, the surge protector will automatically redirect any extra electricity into a part of the power strip called metal oxide varistors (MOVs). Household power strips you purchase at a retail location or online offer limited protection for your devices and most often need to be replaced after any power surges happen. The best thing to do to protect your investments is to install a whole house surge protector.
