January 28, 2022
If you have ever experienced a power surge from a lightning strike or malfunctioning transformer, you know how scary the experience can be. Although most people believe that power surges only come from outside, this is not the case. Large appliances that cycle on and off can cause electrical power surges, damaging your property and compromising the safety of anyone around. HomeOps Electric has a team of experienced and well-equipped electricians who can help you maintain a functioning and efficient system.
One way to ensure your loved ones and appliances are safe is to install whole house surge protection. While this is the primary reason for installing a whole house surge protector, it’s not the only reason these appliances come highly recommended by HomeOps Electric. Some of the reasons why surge protection is ideal for most homes include:
Protection for Electrical Appliances
In the current age of technology that we live in, electronics play a vital role in our daily lives, from cleaning and showering to entertainment and lighting, among many more. Various appliances perform all these functions that enhance the quality of life. To avoid electrical-related damage, it is important to schedule regular maintenance checks with our expert electricians. If you use an electronic circuit board to operate your system, HomeOps Electric should conduct a whole house surge protection installation. This is an excellent way of protecting your appliances from power surges that can lead to a fire.
You are Covered
As the name suggests, a house surge protector covers the entire house, from large to small appliances. Aside from guaranteeing protection for all your appliances, it also reinforces every outlet, guaranteeing protection for everything from your exercise machine to your electric water heater. If you combine this with routine maintenance checks from professional electricians, you are guaranteed a functioning and efficient electrical system. HomeOps Electric can help you prevent potential malfunctions by addressing any damaged component before things get out of hand.
They are Inexpensive
The cost of having our electricians conduct whole house surge protection installation offsets the cost of replacing all the damaged appliances. Since a surge protector covers every electrical appliance and outlet in your home, your electronics are safe from damage. HomeOps Electric can ensure you get the most out of your whole house surge protector, minimizing the risk of incurring electrical damage or a fire.
Statistics show that 60-80 percent of power surges emanate from inside the house. While whole house surge protection installation deals with surges from outside, surge protection power strips protect your appliances from internal surges. HomeOps Electric can ensure that both systems are properly installed, mitigating potential power fluctuations that can damage your valuables. After a comprehensive assessment of your electrical system, our electricians can recommend the most effective and efficient solution.
