Whole-House Surge Protectors In Charleston
In just three nanoseconds, electrical surges can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. Protect your appliances, computers and valuable electronics by installing a surge suppressor that intercepts rogue energy spikes before they enter your home.
Does Your Home Need Surge Protection?
Today’s electronic gadgets are very sensitive to power spikes and surges. Even refrigerators, dryers, dishwashers and air conditioners are equipped with sophisticated microprocessors that require stable power sources. Overvoltage conditions can cause catastrophic damage to these vital components, which might leave you with a broken appliance or a hefty repair bill.
Unfortunately, homeowners insurance companies may or may not pay for damage caused by power surges. Even if they do, many exclusions apply. By investing in a whole-home surge protection service, you’re protecting yourself from financial losses while avoiding the expensive premiums.
Understanding Power Surges and Spikes
According to the Energy Information Administration, South Carolina is one of the worst states for multi-hour power outages. Severe storms coupled with an unstable electrical grid increase the risk of power surges and spikes that can damage microprocessors and sensitive electronics.
Although lightning causes the majority of electrical surges, utility companies can trigger similar problems when they switch substations or perform repairs. Additionally, internal conditions are responsible for more than 60 percent of damaging transient voltages.
Surge Protection Services
At home, you probably plug your computer, flat-screen TV and soundbar into a power strip that blocks energy spikes. However, a whole-house surge suppressor lets you go a step further by protecting every outlet, circuit and major appliance in your home. As a comparison, most plug-in surge protectors can diffuse energy spikes up to 6,000 volts, but whole-house models can block up to 20,000 volts of current during strong storms and major weather events.
If you decide that a surge suppressor is right for your home, we will follow the latest safety standards to ensure that the system performs optimally. When installed properly, surge protection equipment can safeguard all of your appliances and valuable electronics for a minimal cost. We can also test your existing surge protection system to make sure that it’s functioning properly.
