4 Reasons to Have Whole-House Surge Protection

Whole house surge protection can lengthen the lifespan of your electrical system.

The best way to protect your home from widespread electrical damage is to install whole-house surge protection. Power surges can originate from many sources. For example, power grid switching and overvoltage on utility lines can affect your home. Internal sources like turning off and on large appliances can also impact your home’s electrical equipment. Although large power surges from lightning or downed power lines may not happen all the time, everyday small power surges occur throughout your home. These small but frequent surges can deteriorate your electronic items and shorten their lifespans. That reason and more is why we recommend installing whole-house surge protection with Professional Electric Inc

Protect Your Technology 

Modern households have an abundance of electronic gadgets and equipment. Some of your equipment, such as computers, also contain important information. When you install whole-house surge protection, you protect your electrical system from shorts or outages that can harm your appliances connected to your outlets. 

Most Surges Are Generated Internally 

Most power surges are short, or transient, and come from a home’s appliances. These small surges can degrade the performance of your appliances and electronics over time. Surge protection ensures that your devices avoid this degradation over the years.

Layer Your Whole-House Surge Protection 

You may also want to speak to your electrician about layering your whole-house surge protection, especially if you have an elaborate entertainment system established or another expensive electronic set-up. 

The other outlets could be compromised if an appliance sends a surge through a shared circuit. This is why you may not want a surge protector only at the circuit panel. A layered system is connected directly to the electrical panel and at the point of use for maximum protection. 

Complete Protection of Your Electrical System

While whole-house surge protection is intended to prevent your appliances and electronics from harm, it also protects the entire electrical system. When a transient surge comes from a home appliance on a dedicated circuit, it sends the surge back through the breaker panel, where it then protects the other electrical equipment in the home. Complete surge protection safeguards every outlet
