Power surges in your home can cause a whole host of issues, from overloading and damaging electronics to potential electrical fires. Having the means to protect your home and your personal items is important, and rather than investing in multiple surge protection bars all across your home, Best Alameda Electrician brings you a whole home surge protection solution that will keep your home and its contents safe in the event of a power surge or lightning strike near or directly onto your home.
What is Whole Home Surge Protection?
Whole Home Surge Protection operates much like the surge protection bars you can buy for your outlets, yet rather than just installing to one outlet, it is installed near your main power box and operates from there. When an overload of energy is pushed through this area, through lightning strikes or otherwise, the surge protector measures the incoming voltage in a fraction of a second, and closes the avenue for the electricity to travel through your home. This keeps your electronics, outlets and more from being overloaded with an electrical charge that they can’t handle, which would cause damage.
Protect Your Electronics
With a home surge protection unit, you are giving your electronics the means to survive an influx of electrical energy. When too much energy is pushed through their wiring, it culminates at the end of the path with expelled electrical energy, this can be in the form of essentially electrocuting circuits, or on the worse end, causing a flame to be sparked. Having a surge protector in place keeps this event from happening by cutting off the flow of electricity almost the moment it happens, keeping this influx from reaching your electric dependant items and saving them from potential damage.
They key benefit of a surge protection unit is its response time. When energy influxes hit, such as in the case of a lightning strike, the energy traverses your power line in a fraction of a second, which is why you need a surge protector that can beat it to the punch. Our high quality whole home surge protectors give you a response time as low as less than a nanosecond. This immediate response to a surge can be the difference in being effective, and needing to buy an entire new set of electrical items for your Alameda home.
Best Alameda Electrician professionally installed whole home surge protectors not only cover the safety and security of your wiring and electrical devices, but also provide protection to a number of telephone and coaxial television connectors. This gives your entire home the protection it needs at all times. When you think of the amount of items you have plugged into the wall, and calculate the cost of replacing them all, the savings become apparent. Trust Best Alameda Electrician to bring you a whole home protection means that will keep your items and your home safe in the event of an electrical surge with our professional installation.
