Power surges are more common than many people realize due to extreme weather, aging infrastructure, and increased demand for electricity. Unfortunately, they can be extremely damaging to sensitive electronics, appliances, and electrical equipment. At Discount Service Electric, we can help you protect your valuable equipment with the installation of whole-house surge protection in Murrieta, Temecula, Wildomar, and beyond.
Power Surges Cause Serious Damage
Many people use power strips to protect televisions, computers, and video game consoles from power surges. If you have ever had to replace electronic equipment, you know that these power strips are not always effective. Even if they work, they are limited to protecting what is connected to them. Whole-house surge protectors can prevent damage to equipment caused by power surges, regardless of the cause.
Disruptions and power surges may be caused by:
- Storms and lightning
- Downed power lines
- Aging infrastructure
- High demand for electricity
- Faulty wiring
- Problems with appliances or electrical equipment
Consider that the average home may experience up to 20 power surges per day. Most of these are relatively minor and you may not even notice them. However, constant power surges can degrade your electronic equipment and appliances. Installing a whole-house surge protector can help you save thousands, or even tens of thousands, of dollars in replacement costs.
