Voltage Surges: A Nightmare for Electronics
Many of us are aware that when a blackout happens, the first thing to do is to turn off and unplug electrical appliances and gadgets. As much as you anticipate getting the power back, you wouldn’t want the electricity surge to damage delicate electronics, after all. Replacing them will cost you money and time, especially if the damaged appliance or gadget is something you use every day.
At Clements Electric, we’re more than happy to help you out when a voltage surge fries your lights and wiring. But, wouldn’t it be better if you could protect all your electronics at home instead of paying for repairs and replacements? If you agree, then turn to our electrical contractors in Mansfield for a complete home surge protection system.
Signs that a Voltage Surge is Imminent
A surge doesn’t only happen during a storm when lightning strikes close to the ground; a voltage surge can happen anytime, such as when a malfunction occurs at the power station. When energy-demanding appliances like air conditioning units and refrigerators sporadically turn on and off (which happens when there’s a power outage), it could also create a localized surge within a home’s electrical system. This causes electrical overload, which damages the electronic components of appliances and gadgets.
It’s for these situations that you need to be prepared.
Protect Your Gadgets and Appliances from Damage
By installing surge protectors in your home, you can protect your electronics from possible damage due to irregularities in the electric current.
Surge protectors serve as monitors that regulate the current passing through your house’s electrical system. They block power surges and reduce the voltage that enters your electrical lines, which is why people also refer to them as “surge arresters.”
At Clements Electric, you can count on our whole-home surge protection installations. They won’t fail to protect your home from power surges regardless of the cause. We guarantee that this one-time spend will save you from repair expenses in the future.
