Whole House Surge Protection
Why Do Power Surges Occur?
Power surges occur when the wiring in your home and your electrical system experience a burst of high voltage. They can commonly be caused by lightning strikes near your home or your power line. However, there are other reasons for power surges too such as overloaded circuits or outlets. If you make the mistake of overcrowding wiring or plugging in too many appliances in the same socket, you might experience a power surge. Sometimes turning major appliances like air conditioners, washers or refrigerators on and off can cause a power surge as well. Lastly, power surges can be caused by exposed, old or damaged wiring, as the lack of electrical resistance can spike the wire’s current to dangerous levels.
