Why Use a Whole–House Surge Protector?
When some homeowners hear talk of surge protection, they may think that their homes are protected by the power strips into which their computers and other devices are plugged in. While it is true that these surge protectors may offer some level of protection from power surges, this is far from the comprehensive, whole–house surge protection that designated systems can offer. After all, you need only ask yourself if every single appliance in your home is plugged into such a device in order to see the holes in this logic.
A whole–house surge protector is integrated directly into an electrical system at the breaker box. In placing a surge protector at this vantage point, your electrician ensures that a power surge in your electrical system, regardless of where it is or on what circuit it occurs, is dealt with before damage to your home’s electrical system and the appliances and electronics that it powers are damaged. You can enjoy the most comprehensive protection possible by pairing this type system with point of use surge protectors as well.
What Causes Power Surges?
Some people may think of lightning strikes as being the most obvious, and therefore most common, cause of power surges. However, this is really not the case. It is far more likely for a power surge to be caused by downed power lines, or even by the cycling of electrical appliances on one’s own property. There is no telling when a power surge may strike, or precisely where it may originate from. With a whole–house surge protector in place, though, you won’t have to worry about taking any action, or whether or not you had your computer plugged into an unprotected outlet.
As you can imagine, professional services are necessary if you want to know that you have the right surge protection system in place, and that it is in safe working condition. Aside from resetting tripped circuit breakers, you should never trifle with the workings of your electrical box. When the skilled electricians at MVP Electric, Heating & Cooling complete the installation of your whole–house surge protector, you can rest assured in knowing that the job is done right and that your electrical system is in better shape than ever before.
