Experienced, professional surge protector electricians

Have you ever been warned about lightning in a weather forecast? Lightning strikes can literally be billions of volts. Without adequate surge protection, power surges from lightning can damage or destroy computers, security systems and telephones (not to mention trees, houses and lives).

Most service entrance surge protection devices are generally handled by the upstream protection from the actual electrical grid. However, if you have an investment in electronics or critical digital storage onsite, surge protection is vital.

We can install surge protection devices and an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) in any setting. Please call us today for a quote or more information.

What is surge protection, and why is it useful?

Surge protection is a type of electrical protection that guards against voltage surges and other power anomalies. Surge protectors are designed to allow electricity to pass through them but block any sudden voltage increases. This helps to prevent electronic equipment damage and ensure that your home or office remains safe during electrical storms.

Types of home surge protection devices

There are a variety of home surge protectors on the market, and they all serve slightly different purposes. Here are the most popular types:

  • Whole-house surge protection — This surge protector is installed at the main electrical panel and protects your home’s electrical equipment from surges and spikes. It’s an inexpensive way to ensure that all of your appliances are protected from damage caused by power surges or lightning strikes.
  • External surge protection — This prevents 80% of all external power surges, such as lightning strikes, corporate power outages, or maintenance challenges. The external protector is attached to the utility pole in the breaker, safeguarding your home against external power spikes.
  • Strip surge protection — The strip surge protector is a type of portable surge protector that you can move from one outlet to another depending on where it is needed most. This type of surge protector comes with several outlets for plugging in devices such as computers, televisions, printers and more.

Surge protector installation and repair

Although some electrical repairs can be quick, the best path still is to prevent potential issues in the first place. Our team can install surge protection devices in your home or business. You can now decide to have a reliable surge protector on your premises.

Aside from lightning strikes, power surges can also be caused by power grid switching (done by utilities) and when refrigerators and air conditioners turn on and off. The energy spikes can damage the wires and the electronics connected to those outlets. Again, these scenarios can be out of your control. The good thing is you can still prepare for them by having a reliable surge protector.

We’re just one call away!

It’s never a good idea to delay a surge protection device installation because electrical surges are unpredictable and can damage your appliances anytime. If you contact us today, we can send an electrician to your site immediately upon request.

Trust TLE can repair or install your surge protection device! Contact us today if you have any questions about our surge protection services. If it’s your first service with us, we’ll give you 15% off!

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes a surge?

Electrical surges are often caused by lightning strikes but more commonly by appliances drawing out too much energy. When an appliance, such as a portable air conditioner or washing machine, is connected to a power point, it may need a large amount of electricity. If the outlets are old or damaged, there is faulty wiring, or too much power’s being used, a surge may occur.

How are surge protectors different from power strips?

Power strips only allow additional outlets, while a surge protector offers the additional outlets with added safety. Surge protectors will often cost slightly more than power strips but will come with extra protection from surges.

How long do surge protectors last?

An electrical surge protector will diminish every time it protects an appliance from an electrical surge. This is why there is no general lifetime of a surge protector. Most will last three to five years, but replacing them every two years is recommended. Surge protectors might continue to work as additional outlets but not protect devices if they work for too long.
