Protecting Your Home From Power Surges

power surge

In today’s day and age, homes are filled with all kinds of advanced technology. High-tech household appliances, entertainments systems, televisions, computers, etc. are all common items found in our homes. Unfortunately, they’re all at risk from being damaged whilst they are plugged into an electrical outlet. Here’s how you can protect your home from power surges

For the Entire House

To ensure that your entire house is protected from a power surge, a whole-house suppressor should be installed. They usually only take a couple of hours to install onto the service panel of your home. The whole-house suppressor will allow any surges of electricity to flow through it and any excess will be directed towards the ground wire. Installing this in your home is a fraction of what it would cost to rewire your home after a surge from a lightning strike or downed power line.

For Specific Circuits

The most important thing about individual surge protectors is that they are meant to aid a whole-house suppressor, not replace it. When a power surge transpires, excess electricity can escape the suppressor and cause damage. This is when the individual surge protectors come in handy. Plug these smaller models into outlets where expensive electronics and appliances are connected to.

Protecting your home from power surges may cost you a few dollars, but they can save you from thousands of dollars in damages. Installing a whole-house suppressor with a few individual units should be done as soon as possible if you haven’t done so already. With the help of SameDay Heating & Air, your home can stay protected! To learn more, or to schedule an appointment with a technician, give us a call at (801) 726-3329.

Thank you for the wonderful service your company provides. I am new to the area and got your number from the Yellow Pages. All of the ads looked alike. I called two other companies before I called Air Comfort. The first company did not show up.…

We wish to thank you for the installation of our new Lennox furnace and air conditioner, but more than the implements, we are grateful for the careful consideration of your technician. He did a splendid job, which we are sure was above and beyond the call…
