Surge Protection Systems and Service in Orlando, FL
Voltage spikes, also known as power surges, occur when higher voltage than normal moves through the electrical system of a house. These spikes can come in various sizes, from small ones that happen when a large appliance such as a refrigerator or air conditioner turns on and creates an imbalance in the electrical system, to enormous spikes from lightning strikes, downed power lines, and electric utility switching at a local power plant.
No matter the size of the power surge, it can damage valuable appliances in your house, inflicting immense and expensive damage. Defending your household from voltage spikes requires some level of surge protection. If you’re only using power strips for some of your appliances, you need to look into whole-house surge protection. This is the best method to protect your electrical system, especially in Orlando, FL with our occasionally stormy weather and frequent lightning strikes.
Call our electricians at Ace Solves It All to arrange for professional installation of a whole-house surge protector or repairs for your current one.

The Importance of Whole–House Surge Protection in Florida
When we recommend you have a whole–house surge protection device installed, we don’t also mean that you should get rid of the power strips plugged into the outlets. It’s useful to have multiple layers of protection against a sudden voltage spike, no matter the size.
But you should understand that these power strips are an inadequate defense against the size of power surge that comes from something like a lightning strike. This level of voltage spike can cause catastrophic damage to appliances such as the water heater, refrigerator, and entertainment center components and computers, effectively "frying" them. An immense amount of expensive damage can be inflicted in moments throughout your house.
A whole–house surge protector is integrated into the home’s electrical panel, and it stops massive voltage spikes from causing damage by routing the excess electrical power into the ground. This method is a much more effective defense than the fuses in power strips. It’s a simple task for professional electricians to wire up surge protection into your electrical panel so you can enjoy peace of mind the next time a lightning storm starts.
