Power Surges

Protect Your Property Against Power Surges

We’re all familiar with surge protectors, those little devices that look like power strips with multiple outlets.  Back when a home or business had maybe one or two electronic devices, these were sufficient.

However, in the modern era, when even a small business or home has several computers, an entertainment center, smart appliances, HVAC units, and more, these little strips may not be reliable as a means of protecting your expensive electronics.  Also, plug in surge protectors may not fit behind your larger appliances, such as dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers, and refrigerator/freezers, all of which contain electronic components.

Power surges are caused by numerous forces beyond a property owner’s control, including:

  • Power grid changes
  • Lightning strikes
  • Downed power lines
  • Damaged or faulty wiring
  • Utility company equipment malfunctions
  • Cycling of home appliances

You may not be able to control power surges, but Amp Pro Electric can help you control the potential for damage by installing a surge protection device that will protect the entire structure by diverting the extra voltage away from the property.  Whole house surge protectors can also protect your electronic devices from smaller surges caused by the automatic cycling of home appliances.

Home and Business Surge Protection

Although these devices are commonly called “whole house surge protectors,” they can be used for a business as well. They’re incredibly useful wherever you rely on expensive electrical devices like computers. They can even be installed to protect separate systems, such as cable, phone, and internet lines.

Since these devices are installed into the structure’s main power panel and require proper grounding, you need a qualified electrician to first inspect your existing grounding and wiring system, then integrate your new whole house surge protector into your electrical system.

Contact Amp Pro Electric or phone us at 724-816-1616. We’ll be happy to come out and see if your property is a good fit for personalized power surge protection.
