Electricity over surge in a house may lead to disastrous outcomes. It may destroy many electrical devices which may result into unplanned for expenses repairing or replacing these devices. You may eliminate the chances of this happening by installing one surge protector for your whole home. This regulates the amount of electricity coming into your home and thus there will be minimal chances of an over surge in the house.
Every home requires a whole home electrical suppressor for the following reasons. There are numerous electrical appliances with circuit boards. These can be easily destroyed by an electrical over surge from the main power line. To protect all these devices from being destroyed, you will need to install a whole home electrical suppressor.
Most electrical surges in a home are internally generated. This means that the negligible surges that our electrical devices introduce into the system build over time. This causes degradation of the efficiency of these devices. This means that devices that would have lasted for several decades will last much shorter. To prevent this, you will require a whole home electrical suppressor.
Perhaps some of your devices may share an electric socket. This means that a surge by one of the devices will negatively affect all those devices. This can be prevented by layering the surge protector. The layering will be two-leveled: one at the sockets or any other point of service and at the electric service level to protect the whole home. This prevents other devices from being affected by a surge produced by another since not all devices are responsible for the surges we are talking about.
Now, some may ask why you may require a whole house suppressor when the electrical surges are only produced by a few devices. The reason is that even if the devices introduce the surge to the circuit, this surge will not just affect that device, it will affect everything electronic in the circuit. This means that you may be experiencing damaged equipment once in a while. Therefore, in order to reduce this, you should install the whole house electrical suppressor.
Electrical surges may even lead to electrical shocks to people in the house especially when running hot water showers or sinks. This may affect their general health in the long run. It is very important to ensure that your home’s electrical devices are protected from harm. For any questions, clarification or any other HVAC need, contact us.
