What Causes Electrical Power Surges?
There are a number of ways that surges occur. One of the most common is when lightning strikes near a power line causing a drastic voltage spike that results in a power surge leading to the potential damage of electrical components. There is also the more routine and damaging daily surges caused by large home appliances cycling (turning on and off). Although the voltage spikes inside the electrical current may not be apparent to the naked eye, it may lead to the deterioration of your electrical equipment over time. Other reasons include downed power poles, cut power lines, faulty wiring, construction work, etc.
With the expanded use of complex electronics that use significant amounts of energy, having a special surge protection system becomes a definite necessity. You can make a big difference in increasing your home's safety and protecting your electronics and appliances by investing in a whole home surge protection solution. By pushing extra voltage towards the ground, you save a lot from not having to make costly repairs or replace expensive equipment (such as your AC).
