At Wolverine Electrical Contracting, our certified electricians will not only effectively stall your surge protector, but also perform an inspection to determine potential causes of electrical surges. We believe in keeping your home as safe as possible, and residential surge protectors are one recommendation we have to do that.
What is a Residential Surge Protector?
A residential surge protector is an important investment that protects your home from electrical surges or waves of electrical power that travel through electrical wires and damage a circuit. A surge protector is a small box wired to your electrical service panel to blog electrical surges. Although you can buy smaller surge protectors to plug individual appliances into, a residential surge protector is more effective against large electrical surges that can damage large appliances.
Benefits of a Residential Surge Protector
There are many benefits to a residential surge protector, but it is important to have them installed by a certified electrician who understands the intricate wiring involved. Here are some of the benefits you can expect when you install a surge protector:
Rather than buying multiple surge protector cords, you can buy one residential surge protector that will keep everything in your home safe. Although computers, phones, and televisions can be easily plugged into these smaller surge protectors, large appliances are usually plugged directly into the wall. Residential surge protectors limit damage to your smallest and largest devices and can withstand much higher voltage.
Reduce Potential Risks
Think of all the big appliances in your house that run on electrical wiring: the refrigerator, freezer, oven, stove, televisions, etc. If an electric surge gets into your house, past the main breaker panel, it can damage all those appliances and cost you thousands of dollars in repair costs. A residential surge protector prevents electricity from getting past the breaker panel, leaving your home unaffected.
Peace of Mind
You don’t want to feel constantly worried about an electrical surge, especially during a storm. A residential surge protector will help limit that worry and keep you from getting anxious about major potential costs.
