Surge Protection and Hurricane Season

Surge Protection and Hurricane Season Surge Protection and Hurricane Season

Power outages and electrical surges are par for the course during hurricane season.

But your sensitive electronics, expensive home entertainment components, and central air conditioning unit don’t have to become casualties of mother nature’s wrath with a whole-house surge protector.

Typically, power flows through the wiring in your home at a constant level of 110 or 220 volts. A power surge is a sudden burst of current that can push thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands, of volts through your electrical lines and anything that is plugged into an outlet. All this extra power can melt electrical lines, burn insulation, and destroy valuable electronics and appliances.

The three most likely causes are power spikes within the home, these can usually be traced back to larger appliances like your HVAC system or refrigerator, lightning, and disruptions in the electrical grid. Regardless of the cause, effective surge protection can save you thousands of dollars.

You probably already have your computer and a few other electronics plugged into a power strip that doubles as a surge protector, but what about your washing machine, HVAC system, and water heater?

With whole-house surge protection, you don’t have to worry about unprotected electrical outlets because the surge protector is wired directly to the electrical panel so it’s ready to spring into as soon as excess voltage tries to make its way through your electrical system. A whole–house surge protector shields the electrical system itself by preventing the over-voltage from reaching your outlets.

If your hurricane preparedness plan doesn’t include a whole-house surge protector, call All-Pro Electrical and Air Conditioning at (561) 988-0460 today. We’ll evaluate your existing electrical system to ensure that your home is outfitted with the perfect whole–house surge protector for your needs.
