  • A power surge occurs when voltage suddenly increases and exceeds the standard 120 volts. Surges like this can seriously damage your electronic devices, overheat their internal wiring, and sometimes cause them to burn. Any device or appliance is susceptible, including computers, phones, televisions, stereos, and microwaves. If a device has a microchip and circuitry, it's at an even higher risk of damage during a power surge. But when you invest in house surge protection, you can drastically reduce the chances of damage. Thanks to Mr. Electric of Riverview, you can avoid these effects on your devices:

    • Strain or damaged electronics
    • Destroy the device's components
    • Negatively impact their performance
  • Luckily, dealing with power surges isn't a foregone conclusion. If you're hoping to avoid the effects of a surge, be sure to invest in a surge protector for your house. No, not one of those store-bought plugs—a whole house unit installed by your friendly electricians at Mr. Electric of Riverview. Once your whole house surge protector is up and running, it will automatically divert excess electricity away from your devices. While smaller surge protectors can provide some peace of mind, they simply don't compare to the larger systems we can install.

How Does a Power Surge Occur?

Power surges happen for lots of different reasons. In most cases, they occur because too many heavy-duty electrical devices are putting a strain on your main power source. Refrigerators, air conditioners, and dryers are just a few examples of appliances that may need more energy than your system can supply. When you use more than one of these appliances at once, they can easily cause a power surge. In addition to overloading your energy supply, power surges can also be caused by:

  • Bad or aging electrical wiring
  • Downed or damaged power lines
  • Issues with the utility company, their transformers, or other components
  • Lightning (rarely)
