Can you afford damage from a power surge? 

Power surges are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars of property damage every year. Lightning strikes cause surges that can instantly overload and short out the circuitry of home electronics and appliances.  Power surges can enter a home or business through several paths.  In the case of lightning, it can take the path of the cable TV or satellite cable, through telephone and communication lines, or through the incoming electrical service line.  But it’s rare that lightning is the culprit.

 

Besides lightning, what causes power surges?

 Your electrical system can be hit with hundreds of power surges every day.  These surges can come from fluctuations and spikes in the utility power grid however most originate from right inside your own home or business.

In your Home

  • Fluctuations in utility power
  • Power cycling of refrigerators and freezers
  • Furnaces and A/C units
  • Small appliances, hair dryers
  • Lights and devices turned on and off
  • Faulty wiring 

At your place of business

  • Fluctuations in utility power
  • Large motor and machinery loads
  • Cycling HVAC systems
  • Manufacturing and welding equipment
  • Commercial appliances
  • Energizing transformers
  • Switching of large lighting loads

And the list goes on…

 

 

These power surges are usually very brief, usually lasting less than a thousandth of a second.

  But over time these surges can cause cumulative damage to your property, incrementally damaging and decreasing the lifespan of the sensitive microprocessors found in today’s electronics, appliances, equipment and machinery.

The best protection for your home or business is a whole home surge protection device.

A whole home surge protection device (SPD) is wired directly into your electrical panel to safeguard against external power surges like lightning strikes and power grid fluctuations.  The SPD also guards against surges that originate from within your home or business. When your electrical system experiences a surge, the excess power travels back to your electrical panel and can cause further damage.  Having a whole home SPD installed at the panel stops the surge in its tracks, diverting the excess power to ground and keeping your expensive electronic devices, appliances and equipment safe.
