You take care of the electrical equipment in your home as much as you can, keeping fixtures and electronic gadgets free of dust and away from any sources of water. However, if a power surge damages the inside of an electronic device, there’s not much you can do. Power surges may occur unexpectedly for any number of reasons, but you can take preventive action with professional surge protection services.
Whole-house surge protection services are available from Wave Electric Company. This does not mean that we install power strips throughout the outlets in your house. Whole-home protection means installing a single unit that protects all of the electrical components of your home from damage which shortens the lifespan of your equipment.
Why Do You Need Whole House Surge Protection?
Many homeowners have experienced a power surge at some point. Sometimes, the only effect is a sudden loss of power which returns shortly afterward. This may not seem like an issue, but you won’t notice the effects of a smaller power surge right away. These surges can slowly eat away at wiring so that your electrical equipment does not last as long as intended.
You can plug in some of your electronics to a power strip, many of which have surge protection built-in. However, this is not reliable enough to protect all of the sensitive electrical equipment in your home.
Major Causes of Surges Are:
- Lighting Strikes
- Power Outages
- Short Circuits
- Tripped Breakers
- Power Transitions
- Power Malfunctions
- Electromagnetic Pulses
- Inductive Spikes
Regardless of the cause, Wave Electric Company can help protect against damaging, dangerous surges.
We Offer Whole–House Surge Protection Services to Your Area
Whole–house surge protection installation requires the professional knowledge of home electrical systems. An electrician can install this at your main service panel so that every single electrical component in your home has the protection it needs. However, you may continue to use power strips as an additional defense against damage.
When you decide it’s time to protect the costly electronics you operate on a daily basis, or if you need whole–house surge protection services for a new home, call Wave Electric Company!
