A whole house surge protector serves to safeguard your household appliances and electronic devices from the risk of a power surge. With electrical grid disruptions on the rise in the U.S., homes are more susceptible to power surges that can damage electronics beyond repair. The average home has 40 to 50 electronic devices, and the cost adds up quickly during a devastating power surge. With professional surge protector installation, you can have peace of mind knowing your electronics and appliances will be safe—no matter the cause of the surge.
What Is a Whole House Surge Protector?
Did you know the average home experiences approximately 20 power surges each day? While these surges do not typically cause significant damage, in some cases, they can and do. Some of the most common causes of power surges are:
- Power return after an outage
- Overloaded electrical circuit or outlet
- High-power electrical devices and appliances
- Exposed or damaged electrical wiring
Whole house surge protection works by diverting excess voltage away from your property during periods of high electrical demand, preventing damages to your property while also protecting against potential fire hazards. The surge protector diverts the surge to the grounding wire, which then lessens the risk of appliance and device damage.
Benefits of Professional Surge Protector Installation
Is a whole house surge protector worth the investment? Absolutely. A surge protector can save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars in damages if your household experiences a significant power surge. When you stop and think about how many electronic devices and appliances you plug into your home’s outlets, you can quickly understand the value of the investment.
Another potential benefit is that your homeowner’s insurance company may give you a discount for installing a home surge protector. The installation will decrease the likelihood that you will have claims for damaged electronic devices, so they are typically happy to give you a reduction in your premiums.
