What Are Power Surges & How Are They Caused?

A power surge is an unexpected, short-term spike in a property’s electrical current, typically lasting less than a thousandth of a second. When the power fluctuation is severe enough, it can produce an electrical current that is too strong for many appliances to handle. This can lead to damaging or even destroying your electronic devices that are connected to your outlets. Even small surges can gradually diminish your electronic equipment’s ability to function properly.

There are several different things that can cause a power surge, including:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Power grid changes
  • Faulty wiring
  • Downed power lines
  • Malfunctioning utility company equipment
  • High-powered electrical devices turning on and off

To put it bluntly, power surges are unavoidable events that occur regularly. There are many potential errors that can result in an uneven flow of power in your home or business. Thus, each day, all of your expensive electrics, such as your HVAC system, washer and dryer, exercise equipment, computers, TVs, and more, are at risk of serious damage.

How to Prevent Power Surge Damage

The best solution for unavoidable power surges is to install a whole home surge protection device. This is different than the typical store-bought surge protector, which looks like a long extension cord with multiple outlets.

Instead, a whole house surge protection device is mounted into your electrical service panel and diverts excess voltage away from the outlets throughout your property. This offers all the appliances and electrical systems throughout your home protection from voltage spikes.

The Importance of Hiring an Electrician

The slogan of this generation is “do it yourself.” There are many things around your home that you can handle without the help of a professional. However, installing a surge protection system should not be one of them. While it’s easy to plug-in a simple surge protector on your own, a whole house surge protector should be installed by an experienced electrician. That is because it involves accessing the main power panel and making specific connections.
