What Are Power Surges?

Understanding power surges can show you the importance of whole house surge protectors. A power surge can occur with a sudden increase in voltage, substantially exceeding the standard 120 volts. When a power surge happens, wiring inside electronic devices will overheat and start to burn. Most households contain many expensive electronic devices such as computers, televisions, stereos, smartphones, microwaves, and more. Many of your gadgets contain microchips or circuitry that make them exceptionally sensitive to fluctuations in voltage. The best way to protect your valuable devices is with whole house surge protection installation from Mr. Electric of Tulsa. We install whole home surge protectors in Tulsa, Broken Bow, and Bixby, OK. A power surge can strain your devices, compromise their performance, and potentially destroy them.

What Can Cause a Power Surge?

There are many reasons why a power surge might happen, including the everyday operation of heavy-duty electronics. Large appliances such as clothes dryers, air conditioners, and refrigerators require a significant amount of electricity to turn their compressors and motors off and on. Other potential causes of a power surge may include:

  • Downed power lines
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Problems with the utility company’s equipment, such as lines or transformers
  • Lightning strikes, although quite rare

What Are Surge Protectors?

Surge protectors are often thought of as power strips that allow you to plug in multiple devices. These devices pass electric currents from your electrical outlet to any device plugged into the power strip. When a spike or surge occurs, your surge protector will automatically redirect extra electricity into metal oxide varistors in the power strip. Household power strips are not the only types of whole house surge protectors. Our licensed and insured electricians will install more effective protection. We are happy to provide you with an estimate for the cost of whole house surge protectors.

How Whole House Surge Protectors Work

Whole house surge protectors are somewhat similar to cheaper surge protectors, but investing in superior products is worthwhile because whole house surge protectors can withstand multiple power surges over many years, while cheaper surge protectors need to be replaced after every power surge. Whole home surge protectors provide protection for all of your electronic devices and appliances in the event of an electrical storm. Our trained electricians can install a whole house surge protector safely and effectively to protect your family and electronics.
