Why Do I Need a Surge Protector?

When the voltage becomes too high in an electrical circuit it’s known as a power surge. A surge protector redirects any excess energy away from your electrical devices when there’s a power surge. Most homeowners use power strips for surge protection and to help protect electronics and larger appliances from damage. However, there are other options that can provide even better protection, especially for heating and AC systems and large appliances that use a lot of energy.

Whole-House Surge Protection

Power strips can be used to protect electronic equipment. They do not, however, provide ultimate protection against inclement weather and everyday strain from the electrical output of larger systems that use electricity, such as HVAC systems and refrigerators. Even small surges can cause problems for electronic devices in your home over time, particularly computers and other electronics that are more sensitive to electrical surges. A whole-house surge protector can provide more protection from power surges. Call Electrical Connection any time if you have questions about the benefits of installing a whole-home surge protection system in your house.

Home Surge Protector Installation

Whole-house surge protectors are installed at the main electrical panel in your home, and they protect your home from external surges. While they do provide some protection against internal surges from appliances, they can only do this if those surges go to the home’s central service panel. That’s why many electricians recommend using individual power strips along with a whole-house protector.
