Faulty wiring & downed power lines can overwhelm your electrical system and a power surge can spell trouble for your home’s power.
Whole house surge protection is becoming more and more common as we fill our homes with sensitive electronic equipment. Electrical surges happen when a high voltage surge is sent into your home or business through the electrical service which then is distributed throughout the house through the branch circuit wiring. These surges can happen from two causes, lightening or faulty utility company equipment. Lightning can strike the power lines connected to your house or your house directly. Utility equipment failure is very common as well. The surge will typically happen when a tree falls onto the high voltage lines or when a car hits a telephone pole which then can cause the power lines to send a high voltage surge into your home permanently damaging some or all of your electronics. Almost all appliances today contain electronics which can cause thousands upon thousands of dollars of damage. The only way to protect yourself from this potential situation is have a whole house surge protector installed in your electrical system.
We offer a few different options when is comes to surge protectors that range in price and warranty. We offer the very best surge protectors that we source from a wholesale dealer that does not sell to the public and only sell to authorized installers. These units utilize gas tube technology not just the traditional metal oxide varistors. The benefit to these are that they do not fail after a surge and they did their job. The gas tube technology allows the unit to reset and continue to protect your home. In the event of a failure they have LED lights to indicate a fault and an audible alarm to let you know it’s time for a replacement.
