Protect Your Home and Business with Surge Protectors

In today’s world, where technology underpins every aspect of our lives, the last thing you want is for a sudden electrical surge to wipe out your valuable electronics. From homeowners to business owners, and electronics enthusiasts to EV car owners, everyone stands to benefit from comprehensive surge protection. Understanding the risks and taking preemptive action can save you from the inconvenience and high costs of damaged equipment.

Why Should You Consider Whole Home or Business Surge Protector?

Electrical surges are short bursts of excessive electrical energy that can enter your home or business's electrical system. These surges can severely harm or entirely destroy sensitive electronics, leading to potential loss of data, productivity, and significant replacement costs. The sources of these surges may surprise you – they can originate from external factors like lightning strikes or from internal sources within your property, such as large appliances turning on and off.

Without a surge protector in place, every appliance and piece of electronic equipment in your building is at risk every day. It’s not just about safeguarding your gadgets; it’s about ensuring continuity in your daily life and operations.

Where Do Power Surges Come From?

Electrical surges can come from various sources, and knowing these can help you better protect your property. External surges, typically caused by lightning or power line issues, are the most powerful and potentially the most destructive. However, internal surges, which can occur numerous times a day due to the operations of high-power appliances, pose a more frequent threat.

Sensitive electronics and smart home systems, which are increasingly prevalent in modern homes and businesses, can be easily damaged by these surges, making surge protection an essential consideration in today’s digital age.

Lightning:  One common source of power surges is from nearby lightning strikes.  Lightning has a nasty habit of finding its way into the electrical grid, whether through striking power stations directly, or houses and other locations connected to the power grid.  Because of this, a lightning strike can affect homes and businesses miles away from the actual location of the strike!

Power Company Actions: The power company regularly has to do maintenance, and switch over from one system to the other, which can result in irregularities in power.  Old electrical appliances were not as sensitive as new appliances, and power surges have now become a bigger problem.  Historically people were able to protect computers and phones with power strips that had surge protection built in, but now large and very expensive appliances like heat pumps with inverter motors require protection.  Because  of this, new protective products like whole house surge protectors and circuit specific surge protectors are becoming a more common requirement.  By the way,  incase you're thinking the power company should be responsible for the power surge; it is not the case.  Power companies do their best to prevent power surges, but will not be there to help with repairs in the event that a surge occurs.  It is up to the homeowner to protect themselves!

The Solution: Whole Home and Business Surge Protection

Installing a whole home or whole business surge protector provides a first line of defense against these electrical intrusions. This system is designed to detect excess electricity and safely redirect it to the ground, away from your internal electrical circuits. Here's why it's an investment worth considering:

  • Comprehensive Protection: Unlike power strip surge protectors that only cover the devices they’re connected to, whole property surge protectors safeguard your entire electrical system.

  • Cost-Efficiency: The cost of installing surge protection is minimal compared to the potential expense of replacing fried electronics or dealing with data loss.

  • Peace of Mind: With a surge protector, you can rest assured that your electronics, from kitchen appliances to desktop computers, are safe from unexpected electrical spikes.
