Every homeowner should install a whole-house surge protector in Arlington, VA to protect their property from damage during a spike in power. A power surge is a brief jolt of electricity. High-powered appliances, damaged wiring, or an overloaded circuit can all be susceptible to surges.
Weather-related events like a lightning strike or an outage caused by a storm often result in them. The extra burst can happen any time there is an interruption to the flow of electricity, and only whole-home surge protectors offer adequate protection.

The average home contains numerous items connected to the electrical system. The items damaged by a sudden spike in power can include appliances, electronics, and more. Each of these devices uses microprocessors to function. The sensitivity of microprocessors makes them vulnerable to power fluctuations.
Large surges, like those occurring after a power outage, can immediately destroy these components. Smaller surges can also create damage that does not show instantly but can cause devices to wear out sooner than expected.
Many people use surge strips that provide some protection. Unfortunately, even the best surge suppressor can only protect the devices plugged into it. Using only surge strips often leaves other items, like dishwashers and dryers, vulnerable. The external plugs also cannot safeguard the wiring and outlets in the home.
A better solution is to install a whole-house surge protector. Our licensed electricians will hard-wire these directly to the service panel. They will protect all wiring and devices connected to the power supply in the residence. Installing an additional smaller unit can assist with items attached to cable lines. The process does not require demolition or the replacement of current wiring in an updated home.
