Are you considering a whole-home surge protector? If not, then you absolutely should be!
In this day in age, we all rely pretty heavily on technology and electricity, especially in our own homes. From dishwashers and expensive flat-screen TVs to our entire HVAC system, electricity fuels our home and makes life easier as well as much more comfortable.
Although electricity is an extremely powerful and useful commodity, it can also be very destructive without proper precaution and control. For instance, power surges can destroy your entire home’s electrical system and technology in an instant.
Without proper surge protection, your home is left extremely vulnerable to potentially thousands of dollars worth of electrical damage due to unshielded equipment being destroyed by a power surge.
In this article, we will discuss the top 5 benefits of whole-home surge protection. So, listen up and be sure to take note because you absolutely need it!
There are many reasons to invest in whole-home surge protectors, most of which can save you quite a bit of money and frustration. If you are considering the installation of a surge protector, that’s great. Here is how you will
Oftentimes we electricians enter a home for an electrical inspection and discover that the homeowners have chosen to use some form of surge protector outlet for their flat screens, laptops, etc… Which is on the right track, but not quite a foolproof solution.
The problem with surge protector outlets is that they only defend what is plugged into them. Not only that, surge protector outlets aren’t invincible and can still be susceptible to transferring substantial electronic damage.
Your most expensive equipment like your (HVAC unit, fridge, or washer and dryer) are left completely open to severe and total damage that will result in the need for costly replacements that you may not be prepared to take on. With a whole-home surge protector, you can shield your entire home from thousands of dollars worth of electrical damage with just a few hundred bucks worth of equipment.
Most people don’t realize that 80% of power surges are generated within the home.
Most internal power surges (also known as transient) are short jolts of power generated by technology like computer motors, televisions, dishwashers, etc.
Although small surges, over time, these continuous jolts can degrade the performance and lifespan of your affected appliances by up to 30%. This means that although you’ve paid full price for your appliance, you will likely only benefit from ⅔ of its potential usability due to internal surge damage.
A whole-home surge protector can completely shield all of your home’s technology all at once from internally generated power surge damage.
