Surge Protection Electrician in Spokane
Protect Your Home from Damaging Power Surges
Did you know that storms can be damaging your home’s power? Lightning can cause serious damage to your home’s electricity and could potentially result in serious problems such as fires, electrocutions, and damage to electronics. At Epic Electric, Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our Spokane surge protection electricians are proud to offer trusted surge protection services to our customers. We can work with you to install a surge protector that can help divert power surges away from your home and into the grounding system, avoiding costly damages and hazardous conditions.
Do I Need a Whole House Surge Protector?
Home surge protectors, sometimes called panel surge protectors, are created to help prevent serious complications in the event of a power surge. Unlike plugin types, these whole-home protectors can help prevent the surge from entering your home entirely, and instead, divert the energy into an outside grounding system.
We recommend installing a surge protector if you:
- Notice that the lights are starting to flicker, especially during storms or times of high energy use
- Use generators or motors on a regular basis
- Are already using surge protectors throughout the house
Panel box surge protectors are more likely to protect every electrical appliance inside your home and safely protect you, your family, and your electronics.
How Do Whole House Surge Protectors Work?
A whole house surge protector works as a filter that protects all the appliances in your home from voltage spikes by allowing all safe electrical currents in and prevents the irregular spikes from reaching your appliances. These irregular voltage spikes include spikes from lightning strikes, but the majority of surges actually come from within your home. They are typically from major electrical appliances cycling on and off. For this reason it’s important to protect your home with a whole house surge protector.
