What Causes Power Surges?

Power surges can occur from a variety of sources, often catching homeowners off-guard and potentially causing severe damage to their valuable electronics and appliances. Understanding what can create these sudden spikes in voltage can help you effectively protect your home and extend the life of your equipment. 

Here are some common causes of power surges:

  • High-power electrical devices: Large appliances like refrigerators and air conditioners can induce power surges in your home when they demand a lot of power upon starting up.
  • Faulty wiring: Poorly installed or damaged wiring can cause surges and spikes in your electrical system, potentially harming your appliances. 
  • Tripped circuit breakers: Circuit breakers are designed to protect electrical systems, but they can cause power surges if they trip frequently.
  • Power line damage: External factors like downed power lines from storms or incidents impacting the power grid can trigger significant surges.
  • Lightning strikes: While less frequent, a direct lightning strike to a power line can cause a massive surge that could destroy all unprotected electronics in a home.

Why Install a Whole-House Surge Protector?

There are several significant benefits to installing a whole-house surge protector in your home. These devices provide an essential defense against potential electrical hazards, helping you safeguard your valuable electronics and extend their lifespan. Here are a few compelling reasons to consider this installation:

  • Protection for all devices: A whole-house surge protector shields all your appliances and electronics, from your refrigerator and washing machine to your laptops and home entertainment system.
  • Avoid costly replacements or repairs: Regular power surges can damage your appliances over time, leading to expensive repairs or replacements. Surge protectors help prevent this, ultimately saving you money.
  • Increased appliance lifespan: Surges can shorten the lifespan of your appliances. By mitigating the impact of these power spikes, surge protectors can help your devices last longer.
  • Convenience and ease: Whole-house surge protectors are installed at your electrical panel, requiring no additional maintenance or monitoring.
