Whole House Surge Protection

Whole House Surge Protector

With an aging infrastructure, a higher frequency of severe weather and the exponential growth of electronic devices being used in the home, the risk of damage from power surges has never been higher. Every single day, electronic devices and appliances are damaged or destroyed by unpredictable power surges—many of them occurring from within the home. Major appliances cycling on and off throughout the day account for 60-80% of power surges occurring in the home. Faulty wiring, high electricity demand and electrical equipment problems can also result in extreme spikes and drops.

The average home experiences at least 20 power surges a day—half of which originate from within. With more appliances becoming “smart” devices, you can find sensitive electronics and microprocessors installed in making them more susceptible to damage from a power surge. Installing a whole house surge protector is something every home owner should do, especially if they want to protect their appliances and electronic devices. Organizations like the National Fire Protection Association and the Institute of Business and Home Safety highly recommend installing a whole house surge protector.

A professionally installed whole house surge protector is hardwired to your home’s electrical panel and protects electronics from power surges by redirecting excess current safely to the ground. This process blocks excess current before it is able to go through the circuitry of your home. Proper grounding is essential for a whole house surge protector to work well.

Considering everything that is protected, a whole house surge protector can save you thousands over its initial investment cost. It is also an easy way to increase a home’s future sale value. Besides, having complete peace of mind about the protection of investments is priceless.

Don’t let your electrical devices and appliances go unprotected from power surges. Our team of certified electricians are here to help you. We have been serving the electrical needs of Central Virginia homes and businesses for over 50 years. Give Bradley Mechanical a call today at (804) 748-6728 to set up an appointment.
