An electrical surge
is a short burst of excessive, unwanted energy on a circuit. If not suppressed, it can destroy electrical equipment. – Surge Protection Installation Electrician
Thunderstorms are one cause of power surges. Lightning strikes nearby, causing the power to cut out for a moment and then return with a surge.
But afterward, you may experience the following problem — when you try to switch on the TV or computer, it doesn’t seem to work.
Harford County’s power surges are responsible for yearly millions of dollars of property damage.
While lightning strikes are the most well-known source, most electrical surges are caused by the motors and compressors in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other household equipment.
When these systems start and stop, an electrical surge is created, potentially damaging your home’s electrical items and appliances.
Surge Protection Devices (SPDs), combined with a good grounding system, should protect your electronic and electrical appliances from most electrical surges. An SPD does not suppress or arrest a surge; it diverts the surge to the ground.
Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) can protect particular appliances in your home. Still, a more comprehensive approach to surge protection is to combine point-of-use devices with another device, like a “service entrance surge protector” or an electrical panel surge protector.
By installing two tiers of surge protection, you’ll be able to protect your home from all but the most powerful surges.
Service entrance surge protection devices will either be Transient Volt Surge Suppressors (TVSSs) or secondary surge arresters.
Power surge protection services include:
- Transient voltage surge suppression
- Available in both single and multiple power outlets
- Easy installation and minimum maintenance
- Automatic power shuts down whenever the device reaches its maximum capacity of protection
- Bright indicators to inform you about the status of the power supply as well as to alarm you when the voltage is out-of-control.
