Everyone knows that power surges can wreak havoc inside a home, yet surprisingly few homeowners are adequately protected. Make sure you’re playing it safe with surge protection services from Vectra Mechanical HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing in Boulder, Denver, Golden, Westminster, CO, and the surrounding areas.
From video game consoles to refrigerators, all electronic devices are designed to operate within specific voltages. Your home’s electrical system, in turn, is designed to supply power at the appropriate voltage with as little fluctuation as possible. A power surge is simply a sharp, unexpected voltage spike, also known as a transient voltage.
Most people associate power surges with lightning strikes, but many surges actually come from within the home. One common culprit is old or faulty wiring, which can cause significant voltage instability. Certain high-powered appliances can also cause voltage spikes when they turn on or off. Regardless of the cause, however, power surges have the potential to damage sensitive electronic components anywhere in your home.
For many homeowners, guarding against power surges is simply a matter of plugging a few electronics into power strips. Unfortunately, these surge protection devices aren’t always effective and simply aren’t practical for whole-home protection. That’s important because, contrary to popular belief, it’s not just televisions and computers that are at risk.
Thanks to modern technology, fragile electronic circuitry is virtually everywhere. From ovens and toasters to GFCI outlets, power surges can fry thousands of dollars of components in an unprotected home. In extreme cases, a major spike can even spark an electrical fire. For lasting peace of mind, you need something that offers more comprehensive protection.
