Whole-Home Surge Protection in the Greater Salt Lake City Area
Power surges caused by lightning strikes, power fluctuations from large appliances, or your electric utility provider can cause serious and expensive damage to your electronics and appliances. For example, a surge that shorts out your air conditioner in the middle of summer is not only an expensive repair bill, but also an uncomfortable inconvenience you have to deal with until your emergency service technician arrives to repair your unit.
A whole-home surge protector restricts the voltage of a power surge to a safe level before allowing it through your home’s wiring. A licensed electrician connects the surge protector to the main electrical panel or at the base of your meter. A whole-house surge protector defends everything inside your home, including outlets, light switches, phone and cable lines, and hardwired appliances to prevent costly damage in the cause of a power surge.
The Benefits of Whole-House Surge Protectors in Your Salt Lake City-Area Home
Proper surge protection is much more complicated than simply plugging electronics into power strips. Most power strips are not rated to act as true surge protectors. If you choose to use power strips in your home, be sure the strip is clearly labeled as a surge protector. Keep in mind, even labeled power strips can prevent only small surges from damaging your computer or TV. Your large appliances, outlets, and wiring are still susceptible to damage in the event of a surge.
The best approach is a two-tiered setup that combines whole-home surge protection with smaller surge protector power strips. With proper surge protection, you can:
- Add years to the life of your electronics – A power surge doesn’t always completely destroy your electronics in one occurrence. Over time, small surges can slowly damage your electronics over time and shorten their functional lives.
- Fire prevention – Power surges can cause wire temperatures to increase rapidly, causing melting or sparks that can start a fire within your home.
- Avoid the need for electrical repairs – If your whole-home surge protector successfully prevents just one major electrical surge from damaging your home’s electronics, wiring, and appliances, it will have paid for itself. Electrical repair bills can add up quickly.
