What Are the Dangers of a Power Surge? 

Voltage spikes, also known as power surges, occur when high voltage levels move through the electrical system of a house. Appliances are used to a steady flow of electricity and can be overwhelmed by these sudden spikes.

Voltage spikes, or power surges, can result from:

  • Nearby lightning strikes
  • Problems at the local power plant
  • The sudden return of power after an outage
  • Overloaded outlets or circuits
  • Damaged or exposed wiring
  • High-energy appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners

Voltage spikes vary in degree, from mild appliance surges to major utility plant surges. No matter the size of the power surge, these electrical spikes can harm expensive and valuable electronic devices in your house, often rendering those devices irreparable. Even small shorts in your electricity can cause a computer to stop working or trigger small electrical fires in your sockets. You can avoid disaster with a professional surge protector installation by Ace Solves It All. 

Whole-Home Surge Protection: A Smart Investment 

Defending your household from voltage spikes requires some level of protection, and with our surge protection services right here in your neighborhood, you’re in extremely good hands.

If you only use plug-in power strips for some of your appliances, we highly recommend looking into whole-house surge protection. This is the best choice for protecting your entire electrical system, especially in Orlando, with our occasionally stormy weather and frequent lightning strikes. In the event of a power surge, a whole-home surge protector will limit the amount of electrical current rushing into your system, keeping all your appliances safe from damage.

Smart surge protector strips are also a good investment for homeowners who tend to leave electronics plugged in all the time, as those devices continue to draw what’s known as “phantom power,” even when they’re turned off. This wastes energy and money. Smart surge protectors solve this problem, cutting off power flow when electronics are “sleeping.”

There’s no reason to put your essential appliances and expensive electronics at risk. Take the time to assess your surge protection situation today.

Can I Install a Whole-House Surge Protector Myself? 

The idea of installing a whole-house surge protector yourself might seem tempting. After all, DIY projects can be both satisfying and cost-effective. However, taking the DIY route is generally not recommended when it comes to whole-house surge protection. 

Here’s why:

  • Complex Installation: Whole-house surge protectors are not your typical plug-and-play devices. They require electrical knowledge and expertise to be installed correctly. This means understanding your home’s electrical panel, wiring, and safety protocols. A professional electrician is trained to perform these tasks safely.
  • Safety Concerns: Working with electrical systems poses inherent risks, such as electrical shock or fires. Professional electricians have the necessary safety equipment, training, and experience to mitigate these risks and ensure a safe installation.
  • Compliance with Codes and Regulations: Electrical installations must adhere to local building codes and regulations. Professionals are familiar with these standards and ensure your surge protector installation complies with them.
  • Correct Sizing: Whole-house surge protectors come in various sizes and capacities. You need to understand your electrical needs and potential surge risks to select the right one for your home. Electricians can assess your specific requirements and recommend the appropriate device.
  • Warranty and Insurance: Some surge protectors come with warranties that may be voided if a licensed electrician does not perform the installation. Additionally, in the event of an electrical mishap, insurance providers may not cover damage caused by unlicensed DIY installations.
  • Effective Protection: A whole-house surge protector should be strategically installed to provide comprehensive protection for all your electrical devices. A professional electrician can determine the ideal location for installation, ensuring all circuits are safeguarded.

While DIY projects can be enjoyable and cost-effective, when it comes to electrical work and whole-house surge protectors, the potential risks and long-term benefits of professional installation outweigh the DIY approach. To ensure your home and appliances are adequately protected from power surges, consider enlisting the services of a licensed electrician who can install your whole-house surge protector safely and effectively.
