We serve customers in Warren County, Saratoga County, and Washington County, NY.
Common Causes of a Power Surge
There are several causes of a power surge. The most prominent reason is heavy-duty electrical devices demanding more power than your system can support. Refrigerators, dryers, and air conditioning units are just some of the many appliances that call for increased electricity to successfully switch compressors and motors off and on. Devices that offer heating properties, such as ovens, coffee machines, and more, are also known to cause power surges depending on the condition and type of electrical circuit you have. Other reasons you may experience a power surge in your home include the following:
- Insufficient electrical wiring
- Downed power lines
- Issues with the power supply company’s power lines, transformers, or other electrical components
- Inclement weather, such as lighting that increases electrical pressure within the wiring
