We are in the age of technology. Think about how many different types of electronics you have in your home and the cost associated with them: tv’s, computers, tablets, gaming devices, medical equipment, appliances, security systems, that new double oven you just installed, heating and cooling equipment and even garage door openers are all examples of electronics that you wont want to replace in the event of a power surge.
Whole home surge protection is a necessity to protect these expensive investments and can give you the ease of mind needed in the event of a surge. At Casteel, our highly trained electricians can evaluate your home and help protect you from dangerous hazards. Many home owners often think of a home lightning strike as the only cause of a power surge. This is a common misconception. While lightning striking a utility pole, a nearby tree, or even the ground near your home can cause a power surge; poor weather is one of only a few reasons why you would come home to a house full of unusable electrical appliances.
So what happens during a power surge? Technically it is any spike in the voltage flowing through the lines. According to the NEMA Surge Protection Institute, 60% to 80% of power surges originate right inside of your home, most often from major appliances and systems that cycle on and off. Most of these causes are completely out of your control, but can be an unexpected, costly and an inconvenient problem.
While many homeowners are proactive and invest in some form of power surge strips, these are not always the best option and depending on the cause of electrical fluctuation, may not work at all.
