Reasons Whole-Home Surge Protection is Necessary for Every Home

Whole-Home Surge Protector Installed by Amps & Volts Electric

Surge protection is a necessary installation in every home. These tiny devices protect electrical and electronic equipment from voltage spikes or surges. Fallen power lines, sudden power outages, and tripped circuit breakers can all cause homes to experience a power surge and even cause fires. Without a surge protector on your electrical panel, you could potentially lose all your electronics in the home. Everything from appliances and televisions to computers and gaming equipment, even your furnace control board can be damaged or completely lost! 

Why do you need a Whole-Home Surge Protector?

  • Protect Sensitive Technology Equipment. The main goal of installing surge protection is to keep sensitive electronic equipment, appliances, and electrical systems safe from the damage that voltage spikes can cause. These days, homes have more technology than ever before. Most homes have a computer or smartphone plugged into every outlet. These shocks can damage devices if they’re not adequately protected. 
  • Power Surges. Voltage surges, also called power surges, happen when the electrical voltage in a power line goes up quickly and for a short time. They can cause damage immediately, but even smaller surges that occur over and over can wear down electrical parts over time. Did you know that many power surges come from appliances? Basically, appliances can suck too much energy and generate small surges that shorten the lifespan of your appliances over time. An example can be running the microwave or running an air conditioner.
  • Data safety. Electronic devices store essential data and need protection from power surges. A power surge can damage or delete data, causing data loss or system problems. 
  • Complete Electrical Protection: A whole-house surge protector can do more than protect appliances and devices; it can protect your home from harm. Surges can cause fires in electrical equipment. A surge protector can help prevent fires from surging electrical spikes. A simple whole-home surge protector will safeguard every outlet in your home.
