Whole Home Surge Protection
Our homes possess many electronics, from our phones to our stoves. What would you do if one day all of these devices had to be replaced? It’s not a situation that most would be prepared for. You may think that power strips are protecting you, but surprisingly, these do not do much in the event of a serious power surge. Instead of relying on these small products for protection, consider having your local electrician install a whole home surge protector.
Though we often think of serious power surges, throughout the course of a year, small, unnoticeable surges happen constantly. These cause damage throughout time, and can also be controlled by installing a whole home surge protector. The protectors can be installed at the utility meter, or the breaker box. You can never go wrong by installing them in both areas. Surge protectors act like a pressure relief valve, immediately diverting excess energy to the ground. The investment in protection is worth not having to replace thousands of dollars’ worth of appliances and electronics later. Controlled Electric can advise you to the best solution for your home.
