Becoming a homeowner is very exciting. When purchasing a new home, you must also purchase your own home appliances, including a refrigerator, washer, dryer, stove, and dishwasher. It’s important to protect these investments and ensure that they last as long as possible. Protecting your home appliances can be easy when you use full-home surge protection. Surge protection is essential because each of these appliances can be very expensive, especially when purchasing high-quality pieces as investments in your home.
Why You Need Protection from Surges
Power surges can be caused by lightning strikes, power outages, or faulty wiring. These surges can damage your home’s electronics and appliances, costing you lots of money to make repairs or find replacements. Investing in surge protection can help you save money by safeguarding your electronic devices and appliances so they last longer. You can easily protect your home electronics by purchasing small surge protector power strips; however, this type of surge protection isn’t strong enough for large appliances, and it’s also hard to monitor the amount of surge protection a small power strip has. Fortunately, ProTec has developed state-of-the-art technology for protecting all the appliances and electronics in your home from electrical surges.
How Full-Home Surge Protection Works
A whole-house surge suppressor is a device that is installed in your electrical meter that protects your entire home from power surges. The device deflects unwanted surges into the ground to ensure that your home’s appliances aren’t damaged by the excess electrical current. This protection even protects you from the surges you may not even know about. It ensures that the electrical current being fed into your home is consistent and doesn’t harm your electrical devices.
Your service begins with a power-quality survey. A specialized technician will provide a thorough inspection of the power service line, including your ground rod. The survey helps pinpoint and resolve any problems that could lead to unreliable power quality. You are not required to be home for this inspection; however, if you are available, your technician can provide an interior audit of the home and make recommendations for secondary surge protection for sensitive electronics. Once you’re ready for the whole house surge protection to be installed, your technician will come to install the suppressor.
Surge protection won’t just make your devices and appliances last longer. It can also minimize the risk of deadly home fires. To get reliable whole-house surge protection, get in touch with ProTec today!
