Don’t Risk Surge Damage – Install a Surge Protector

When you purchase electronics for your home, you want to ensure they last a long time. To protect them from surge damage you need to install a whole house surge protector. 


This can protect you against the following risks:

  • Your home can be at risk of lightning strikes up to a mile away. 
  • Your property may suffer from surge damage as temperatures increase.
  • Your house may experience an average of 22 energy spikes a day.


How do surge protectors work?

Surge protectors limit the voltage supplied to electric devices in your home when a power surge occurs, preventing those devices from getting more electricity than needed, and protecting them from damage.


For Pennsylvania residents, surge protectors are especially useful during hurricane seasons or heavy storms when power surges are more likely to occur. Surge protectors can divert extra electricity from lightning, however, they do not protect from a direct strike to your home.


Why You Need A Whole-Home Surge Protector

A power surge might not seem like a big deal when it only lasts a few seconds, but those few seconds can potentially do a ton of damage. Multiple electric surges over time can degrade your system and increase electrical damage or even fire. It is not worth the risk not to have a whole-home surge protector when you have thousands of dollars worth of valuable appliances and devices on the line, and you certainly can’t put a price on your safety and peace of mind.

Call us to install a whole house surge protector. Installing a whole-house surge protector will keep your devices safe and allow your electronics to keep working as expected.
