Why Power Surges Are Becoming Such a Problem
Many homeowners assume that there are not too many blackouts throughout the year, and that it is not necessary to invest in a surge protector. The problem is that in many cases, power surges come so quickly that you may not even notice them, even if you happen to be home during the evening and notice your lights flicker. A recent survey conducted on energy safety within the U.S. demonstrated that every single household experiences at least 35 major power disruptions annually, and this does not even count the supposedly more “minor” ones.
As the utility industry struggles in today’s economy, the continual deregulation means that we can expect our power grids to be even less dependable. The fact that environmental issues have also increased hazardous conditions, combined with this overall decrease in reliable energy control, means that power surges will become even more common.
Whole-home surge protectors work by utilizing elements known as metal oxide varistors (MOVs) to halt power surges from damaging your devices. Even though you may currently have a point-of-use surge protector — and owning one of these is definitely better than having no protection at all) — these limited surge protectors cannot redirect the power from huge sources of energy, like lightning strikes. Allow our technicians to install these long-lasting protectors, which can withstand much larger surges.
With our whole-home surge protectors, you will have security from:
- Major power outages
- Short circuits
- Lightning storms
- Inductive spikes
- Trees that have fallen on power lines
- Mistakes made by power companies
- Circuit breakers that have been tripped
- Unexpected power shifts caused by large appliances
- Large electromagnetic pulses
