A power surge—or a spike in the current flowing through the wires of your house—can take a toll on your home’s electronics and circuits. It can do thousands of dollars worth of damage to your expensive televisions, gaming systems, computers appliances and more.
Power Trip Electric can protect your expensive equipment with a whole-house surge protector.
What Causes Electrical Surges?
There are two main causes of electrical surges:
- 1. External factors such as lightening strikes or damaged power lines.
- 2. Internal factors such as appliances that cycle on and off throughout the day
Both can cause irreparable damage to your equipment. Whole-house surge protection that is supplemented with point-of-use surge protection is the best way to protect your expensive equipment.
What is Whole-House Surge Protection?
Installed at the circuit breaker box, a whole house circuit breaker protects your home against up to 40,000 amps of current flowing into your home. When a sudden surge occurs, the device detects the excess current and diverts it to your home’s grounding path.
The experts at Power Trip Electric can help you with all of your surge protection needs. We can even recommend the best portable surge protector, which acts as a secondary layer of protection to protect your computers and home entertainment systems against energy surges.
