Consider this: in the midst of a raging storm, lightning strikes your home, sending a tidal wave of electricity through your home’s wiring, burning out sensitive electronics such as computers, televisions and even refrigerators, washers, dryers and much, much more. Could it have been prevented? Yes! You may think you’re protected with the many power strips you have in your home, but you’re not. The only way to truly protect all the valuables you have in your home is with whole house surge protection by Express Electrical Services. Many power strips are little more than extension cords, offering little in the way of true protection from powerful power surges. Most of the today’s electronics and appliances are extremely vulnerable to surges and can cost thousands and thousands of dollars to replace.
Most power surges are relatively minor, lasting for a fraction of a second. But every once in awhile, a powerful surge can send tens of thousands of volts through your home. Lightning and downed power lines are sources of major surges. That damage may not be clear, either. Even a minor fluctuation in power can reduce the lifespan of a device such as a microwave.
As the sophistication of today’s electronics has increased, so has the need for true protection against power surges. Any wave of voltage can cause irreparable damage; major surges can even result in electrical fires. But you can substantially reduce the risk of damage by having a whole house surge protector installed in your home. These fantastic systems will protect your delicate electronics and minimize the chances of a fire. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that even if you are out of town you’ll be protected should your home experience a power surge. In addition, a whole house surge protector will add value to your home as well. Potential home buyers will be even more attracted to your house when you have this invaluable device installed. Whole house surge protectors are reliable and inexpensive, made to fit nearly any budget.
