Do I Need Whole-House Surge Protection?

Blog default

Have you ever thought about the effect that a power surge can have in your home? This may happen for many reasons, from a lightning strike near the home (a less common event) to a downed power line. A power surge has the potential to ruin your electronics, even those we wouldn’t normally think to be at risk. Today, you rely on appliances with complicated wiring and circuitry, all of which can be destroyed by a sudden power surge.

One of the best ways to protect the most important electrical components in your home is by installing a whole-house surge protector. And some of the most qualified people for electrical installation in Avon work with Electrical Connection Inc. Call us today to learn more about your options for whole-house protection.

You may have used power strips to plug in your appliances before, some of which also offer surge protection. This feature is meant to limit the voltage that reaches your appliances so that they may avoid the effects of a sudden surge. However, this only protects the appliances that are plugged directly into them. Whole house protection is a safer, more permanent solution for those who wish to protect every portion of the home from potential surges, no matter which room of the home you are in.

If you’re wondering whether you really need whole-house surge protection, just keep in mind: any home can benefit. It could cost you thousands upon thousands to repair all of the appliances that could potentially suffer from damage in your home if you wait for too long. And a power surge can happen so unexpectedly, you can lose the most important components of your home in what seems like an instant, or your appliances may not actually ail until months after a surge. It’s not too late to begin thinking about protecting your home.  A whole house surge protector is hardwired into the service panel, which can be done for new home wiring or for existing wiring.
