Power surges and spikes can occur at any time. In fact, up to 25 small surges a day – resulting from voltage irregularities and motors turning on and off – are common.
Over time, the cumulative effect of these daily power surge can damage or ruin today’s more sophisticated electronics, appliances and, worse yet, your home heating and cooling systems. Even more likely to cause damage, however, is a major power surge, the kind that occurs from a lightning strike, downed power lines, or when power is restored following a power outage.
At Absolute Air, we can help eliminate all that worry with a whole-house surge protector installed adjacent to your fuse box or circuit breaker panel. When a surge or spike occurs, the device will detect the excess current and safely diverts it through your home’s grounding path.
Two More Reasons to Arm Yourself with all Whole-House Surge Protection
- Added Protection – A whole-house surge protector can stop up to 20,000 volts of electricity. Power strips with built-in surge protection, by contrast, are equipped to block only up to 6,000 volts.
- Saves You Money – Since most homeowners insurance policies don’t provide protection for damage caused by a power surge, installing a whole-house surge protector can prevent losses in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars.
