Surge Protection in Buffalo, NY
Take a moment to think about all the various things in your home that rely on electricity, either directly or indirectly. Your television, your audio equipment, your computer, printer, and all your portable electronics—each one needs electricity to run. Because you rely so heavily on electronic equipment, you need the right systems in place to protect your home from power surges.
Power surges are the worst enemy of modern homes. They’re a fast way to damage property and ruin appliances. If you’re worried about the quality of these appliances in your home, then whole-house surge protection is the answer. You can find great surge protection services here at Scherer Electric. We’re Western New York’s favorite electrician.
Why Should I Consider Whole-House Surge Protection?
When you think "surge protection," you’re probably thinking about power strips. While this is a method of surge protection that many people employ in their homes, it’s far from the end-all-be-all. Power strips can’t hold a candle to whole-house surge protection.
Whole-house surge protectors are great because they act faster at stopping the damage from surges. They act much faster because a surge protector is installed into the service panel (the main source of power in a home) where it’s able to re-route any excess voltage into the ground underneath the house. Whole house surge protectors can effectively defend any electrical system and the components connected to it from things like lightning strikes, downed power lines, or power company accidents. Choose one of these systems if you want total peace of mind.
They Protect Against Smaller Surges Too!
When was the last time lightning struck your home? If you’re like the overwhelming majority of people, your answer is probably "never." While whole-house surge protectors are great for defending your home against disaster, they can also prevent commonplace nuisances.
There are smaller fluctuations that occur in your home on a daily basis. When a large appliance like your refrigerator or air conditioner has an increased demand for power, it can cause a surge and a subsequent voltage imbalance. You may not notice these small spikes, but they can do major damage to your electrical appliances. A whole-house surge protector prevents this from happening so your appliances last longer.
