Do you use surge strips to protect your electronics? While these portable strips are convenient and can help in the event of a sudden surge, they are not enough to protect the rest of your home. This is where whole-home surge protection comes into play.

Even though power surges typically last less than a second, they can result in major damage if appropriate safeguards are not in place.
Power surges often occur when your local utility company performs power grid updates. Lightning can cause surges as well.
Your everyday appliances and electronic equipment are also common sources of power surges—particularly if you have powerful systems running at the same time, such as your water heater, furnace, air conditioner, and garage door opener; these systems require a significant amount of energy and electricity to operate.
Although portable surge strips are effective at protecting smaller electronics such as your laptop, television, or audio systems, their line of protection stops there. Your larger appliances (AC, heating units, water heater) remain vulnerable. A single unprotected outlet can cause damage to all of your appliances and electronics.
This is why we encourage homeowners to consider whole-house surge protection.
Comprehensive surge protection will prevent excess energy from harming your outlets and electrical systems. With a surge protector in place, normal electrical currents are allowed to pass while higher voltages are quickly rerouted to your ground wire instead of your electronics or appliances. A whole-home surge protector can respond within nanoseconds to unexpected surges.
The typical whole-home surge protector can prevent surges of 40,000 amps or greater. Higher-quality products will have additional features such as thermal fuses or alarms.

Whole-house surge protectors are fitted into your electrical panel. If necessary, we will move around existing breakers and wiring to make room for your new surge protector.
Installation is quick and fairly straightforward. However, even if you are more handy than the typical homeowner, we still recommend enlisting the help of a licensed professional. Since adjustments will need to be performed on your electrical panel, an experienced electrician will be able to ensure that the job is carried out safely and accurately.
