How many thousands of dollars have you spent on your home appliances, such as a flat screen TV, refrigerator or your computer? Every appliance and piece of electronic equipment in your home is an investment; one you should carefully protect. It’s astounding how many homes lack surge protection at their panel boxes. For a relatively small investment, you can keep your appliances and electronics from becoming an expensive casualty of a bad weather day.
If you want to install new surge protectors or have your current surge protectors tested, call the electricians at Ace Pelizon Plumbing. We provide expert electrical surge protection service throughout the San Gabriel Valley area so homeowners have consistent and safe access to their home’s electricity at all times.
Home Surge Protection
There are many types of surge protection you can install. You likely already have a simple surge protection system in place for at least some of your possessions. This likely includes your computer or entertainment system. Power strips and surge protection blocks work fairly simply. If the power goes out or a surge of electricity comes through the system due to a trip in your breaker box or a temporary interruption in the system, the surge protector absorbs the excess power and keeps it from destroying your computer or TV.
You’ve been told how important these devices are since the first computer you purchased, but the same precautions can be installed in your panel box to cut surges off at the pass before they have a chance to reach appliances plugged in to unprotected outlets.
Surge Protector Options
There are many surge protection options, ranging from single outlet surge protectors to more advanced systems that can protect against multiple surges. What you need depends on how often your electrical system is serviced and the risk of power outages in your area. To better understand your options, talk to a professional about the best solution for your home before choosing a surge protection device.
