What Is a Power Surge & What Causes It?
Put very simply, a power surge is a sudden and drastic increase in your home’s power current. These spikes, though usually extremely brief, force vast amounts of power into your home and appliances. So much, in fact, that it can result in everything from overloaded and burnt out appliances, to creating an electrical fire.
This problem can be caused by a very wide number of issues, including:
- Storms (which is one of the more common causes here in Maryland)
- Incidents at the power company, or involving power lines
- Bad, aged, or loose home wiring
- The use of high-power appliances like HVAC systems
Power surges are a consistent threat in our area, and you need to be equipped to take on anything that comes your way in order to avoid dangers to your health, and to the health of your vital appliances. That’s why whole-home protection systems are so vital, and why GAC Services takes great care in offering the best.
What Is a Whole-Home Surge Protector?
Surge protectors whether whole-home or not, are designed to control, regulate, or outright stop dangerous spikes in electrical power. In a whole-home system your home’s electrical is monitored constantly by the device. If a spike is determined, the system will instantly ground or block excess voltage, keeping it from affecting your home in any way.
Whole-home protectors are highly relied upon in Maryland homes, including those in Frederick and Montgomery County. We deal with all kinds of trouble with electrical around here, from crazy storms to traffic incidents causing a downed line. But with a surge protection system in place you know you’re always guarded against costly and potentially dangerous electrical issues.
