OUR SERVICESElectric Whole Home Surge Suppressor Installation
Most home owners think lightning storms are the main culprit for excess power surging through their home. To others, small power surges seem irrelevant and happen too quickly to cause any harm. The fact is even the smallest power surges can damage your home's electronics and appliances. At South End Electric we take pride in helping keep our customers home’s safe and secure. With a whole house surge suppressor, you don’t have to worry about buying multiple smaller strips, because your electrical system will be protected at the source! Best of all, we work within your budget to find the ideal solution for your home needs.
How a Surge Suppressor Can Help
While you may be accustomed to buying individual surge protectors for main appliances like your television and game system, a whole home surge protector may actually be the smarter and more convenient solution.
Electronics - control boards in many appliances are common to almost all modern appliances. Even the LED lighting in your home has a circuit board. We also plug in a lot of computers and other technology - all that can be damaged when small surges rush through the wires.
HVAC can Cause Surges - Air conditioners and other major appliances often introduce small surges into a home's electrical lines. These surges may be short, but they can be strong, too. And that quick, intense burst of electricity can deteriorate your wiring and electronics, reducing their useful lifespan.
Protecting Your Electric Panel - AC units and large appliances typically run off a dedicated circuit and can send surges of electricity into your main breaker box. When these units push a burst of energy through the breaker box, a surge protector will stop the surge before it passes through the breaker panel, protecting all the other electronics in your home.
Think of a house surge suppressor as a scaled up version of the small strips you use throughout your home. With one of these systems in place, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that even the largest power surges won’t damage your home.
Is A Surge Suppressor Really Worth It?
You can save thousands of dollars over the cost of your initial investment when you get a professional to install a whole house surge protector. Once installed, the surge protector can protect several thousands in repair/replacement of appliances and electronics.
