At Jones Services, our electricians in Goshen install surge protectors that can help keep your appliances and electronics safe. While you more than likely have some power strips here and there in your home to protect from a power surge, they actually offer little protection.
Power Surges in Goshen
Faulty utility company equipment, lightning, the cycling on and off of large appliances, downed power lines and faulty wiring are just a few of the reasons behind power surges. Anything with a microprocessor – such as a television, refrigerator, washer, dryer, television, telephone, microwave or alarm system – can be damaged severely in a power surge. One major surge can cost you thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
Whole Home Surge Protection in Goshen
You can have the peace of mind knowing that you can have one home surge protector installed for your entire home, rather than trying to rely on scattered power strips that may or may not provide the protection you need. A whole home surge protector can provide protection to not only your power lines, but your telephone and cable lines as well.
Surge Protection Benefits in Goshen
There are several benefits from having whole home surge protection. Some of them include:
• Time and money savings
While your neighbors will have to spend their time calling an electrician in the event of a major power surge, and will have to spend a great deal of money replacing damaged electronics, you’ll be secure in the knowledge that all of your electronic devices and appliances are protected.
• Enhanced home value
: If you have a whole home surge protector, your house will stand out from others that are on the market when it comes time to sell. If a buyer is trying to make a decision between your house and two or three others, your whole home surge protector could very well be the factor that separates your home from the competition.
Safe Use of Surge Protectors in Goshen
Here are some tips to follow if you are interested in purchasing a whole home surge protector:
• You should continue to use power strip/surge protectors for very expensive or extremely sensitive devices.
• Make sure your surge protector has an internal circuit breaker to help prevent fire in case it is overloaded.
• Make sure your surge protector is not overloaded. It will be hot to the touch if this is the case.
• Make sure your protector is the correct model for your electrical needs.
