Plano Electrician & Surge Suppressors

Surge Protection

Surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in electrical voltage that travel throughout your Plano home’s electrical system.
Some electrical surges come from within your own home, such as turning on a dryer or sending a document to your printer.

Other electrical surges come from outside your Plano home, as in electric utility switching, downed power poles, cut power lines, and lightning strikes. Electrical surges can even enter through cable televisions and telephone wiring.

For example, if lightning struck in a Plano area home, or somewhere around the Plano home, a surge may go through the electrical system and anything that is plugged in may get “fried”, whether it is turned on or off.

Plano homeowners end having to pay out of pocket to replace these appliances and most Plano homes have some type of expensive electronic equipment in it; for example, kitchen appliances, water heaters, etc., which are vulnerable to power surges. These items can be protected with a whole house surge protector.
