Spring has just begun, meaning we are a short time away from the start of hurricane season. Perhaps you’ve already taken some steps to prepare, such as restocking your disaster supply and creating an evacuation plan for your family. But have you thought about your electrical system? This is a particularly vulnerable component of your home, and certainly not one to be ignored this time of year. This is where whole-house surge protection comes in.
Why Whole-House Surge Protection?
Surge protection is important because it protects valuable electronics and appliances within your home. Hurricanes bring high winds and lightning, both of which present the risk of power surges and electrical shortages. This damages your entire electrical system, not to mention the expensive electronics you have plugged in. Sure, you can try to protect your devices with power strips, but the level of protection required for today’s numerous electronics can simply not be had without a whole-house solution.
How Does It Work?
A whole-house surge protector is hard-wired directly into your circuit breaker box by a professional electrician. By being hard-wired right into the system, it can handle any power surge before it even makes it onto your circuits. There’s no need to worry about plugging your devices into surge protector power strips, because the whole-house system protects the entire home. Whole house surge protection guards against not only weather-induced power surges, but also the short, intense bursts that homeowners often unknowingly generate themselves. When determining which type and how much surge protection you need, each home and its contents are assessed individually. To install a whole-house surge protection system, you’ll need a knowledgeable professional electrician to do the job.

In order to protect your home, your electrical system, and the convenience with which you go about your day, we advise that you consider the use of a whole-house surge protection system in Delray Beach, FL. Such systems must be professionally installed and serviced by professional electricians if they are to operate safely and properly, of course. That is why you should schedule your whole-house surge protection services with the professionals at All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning.
How It Works
A whole-house surge protector differs greatly from the small power strips that you may use in your home office or throughout the house. These power strips may offer some level of protection to those devices that are plugged directly into them. They are far from comprehensive in their protection, though, and cannot rival that of a whole-house surge protection system. A whole-house surge protector is a permanent installation in your electrical system, hard wired into it at the service panel. This allows a whole-house surge protector to handle any power surges before they ever even make it onto your circuits. You don't have to worry about ensuring that all of your valuable electronic devices are plugged into a surge protector, because a whole-house surge protector protects the entire electrical system. You must remember that, even if you were to use power strips with surge protection capabilities at every outlet in your home, this is not the only way in which a power surge can make it into your system. Phone lines and television cables can also introduce excessive amounts of electricity onto the system. Protect your home, your comfort and your convenience by using a whole-house surge protector on your property.
