Give Yourself the Gift of Surge Protection This Season

burnt-outlet

When you invest in a big home appliance like a heater, the last thing you want to happen is for it to degrade more quickly than it should. You are careful to use best practices with your heating system though, such as moderate temperature settings and regular filter changes, to ensure it isn’t worn down too fast. However, there is one potential threat to this and other parts of your home that you may not have considered: a power surge.

“Oh but I have a surge protector, so I’m okay!” If you are thinking this because you have a power strip, you’d actually be wrong. Power strips only offer a small amount of protection from power surges and can actually present a fire hazard if the surge is bad enough. The best way to protect yourself and your home’s systems is to install a whole-home surge protector.

What Causes Power Surges?

The first thing that might come to mind when you think about power surges is a lightning storm. While a lightning bolt hitting your home or a power line near you can indeed cause a power surge, this isn’t actually the root cause of most incidents. Most power surges are caused by internal sources in your home.

In many cases, your larger electrical equipment, like your heater or your air conditioner, can be the source of a power surge. When a large appliance like these shuts on and off it can create a surge of energy that can end up damaging other electrical systems in your home, ranging from your refrigerator to your TV. Installing surge protectors to your electrical system can help to protect your home from the damage these surges can cause. And, good news, this is one of the electrical services in Oklahoma City, OK that Air Comfort Solutions provides!

What Does a Surge Protector Do?

So what is the best way to protect your home’s appliances from power surges? Install a power surge protector! These are different from the commonly purcharged power strip surge protectors.

Installed into your electrical panel, a surge protector is an addition to your system that helps to redirect excess energy into the ground, rather than allowing it to travel into your electrical system where it can harm other appliances. This can help to prevent a variety of issues such as burnt outlets, appliances that degrade more quickly, and even electrical fire hazards.

Why Have a Pro Perform the Installation

Like we mentioned above, whole-home surge protectors are installed into your electrical panel, which is like the main command center for your home’s electricity. This is no place for anyone other than a trained and experienced professional to be. Unless it is something small like resetting a tripped circuit, it is best to leave all other electrical system services in the hands of a professional.
