Sudden increases in voltage in a residential building's electrical system are unfortunately common, and most people take precautions to prevent these surges from damaging precision equipment such as computers, charging cell phones, and entertainment systems. But not all defenses against surges are equal, and the store-bought power strip isn't the final answer to surge protection. We recommend that you consider the installation of a whole-house surge protector. Your electrical system and all your valuable equipment will thank you for it!
Only call on licensed electricians for installation of whole-house surge protectors. Pezz Electrical Services, LLC will see that you receive the best work, and back it up with guarantees. We have a long history of quality electrical installations, repairs, and maintenance in Central New Jersey, Somerville and Hillsborough: we've been generating safety and comfort for more than two decades!
"But I have power strips. Aren't those enough?" Plenty of people say this when they hear about whole-house surge protection. The truth is that power strips are one of the defenses against voltage surges, but they are only one line of defense. There are types of voltage surges that power strips are ineffective against, such as the immense electrical load that a lightning strike or major power plant accident can send through the lines.
There are also many small surges that can occur on a daily basis that don't draw much attention but can cause cumulative damage to precision appliances. For example, when the compressor in a refrigerator or air conditioner comes on and makes a large demand on the electrical power, it can cause a surge through the rest of the electrical system.
By all means, keep your power strips in place for your valuable equipment. But don't rely on them alone! Whole-house surge protection offers the first and best line of defense against voltage spikes.
How does a whole-house surge protector offer such a reliable barrier against sudden voltage increases? This device is integrated into the electrical panel of the house, where the incoming electricity divides into various circuits. The surge protector senses when too much power is moving through the electrical system, and it activates to ground the electricity so that it doesn't travel through circuits that cannot handle it.
These surge protectors are enough to redirect enormous voltage levels, such as those caused by downed power lines and lightning strikes. You must have a licensed electrician handle the installation work (as well as any follow-up repairs) for a surge protector. An amateur job can put your home at risk of an electrical fire.
