Surge Protection

Surge Protection

Our homes are filled with electronic devices that make our everyday living simpler. These devices—things like computers, televisions, refrigerators, washers and dryers—all rely on electricity to work. Most likely these devices also contain sensitive components like circuit boards making them vulnerable to damage from a power surge and are costly to repair or replace. In a recent study of home owner’s insurance claims, over $825 million was paid to more than 100,000 claims due to lightning strikes and power surges.

Think for a moment of how many devices you have in your home that run on electricity. Now answer this question, how many of those electronic devices in your home are protected from lightning strikes and power surges? If you are not certain those devices are protected, there are ways Bradley Mechanical can help.

Whole House Surge Protection

A whole house surge protector protects all of the appliances and electronic devices within your home from power surges and limits the amount of electrical current entering your home. Think of it as a pressure relief valve for electricity. It does not just protect from external power surges like lightning strikes. A whole house surge protector also keeps appliances safe from power surges created from within the home—usually from major appliances likes heat pumps cycling on and off.

Dedicated Computer Circuits

A dedicated computer circuit makes sure your computer can access the power it needs without overloading the system causing a tripped breaker, blown fuse or power loss. Installing a dedicated computer circuit in your electrical box can reduce the risk of electrical fires by preventing computers from drawing too much current and overheating wires.

Arc-Fault Circuit Breaker

An arc-fault circuit breaker is a device that breaks an electrical circuit when it detects an electric arc fault within the circuit it is protecting. More than half the home electrical fires that occur in the U.S. each year involve arcing from home electrical equipment. Having arc-fault circuit breakers installed can provide a higher level of protection from hazardous arcing conditions and can help prevent an electrical fire before it starts.

Don’t let your home and electrical appliances go unprotected from power surges and electrical fires. Bradley Mechanical has a team of certified electricians ready to help you protect your home and appliances. We have been serving the residents of Central Virginia and all of their electrical needs for over 50 years. Give us a call today at (804) 748-6728.
