Whole-House Surge Protector Installation in MD, DC & Northern VA
Affordable Whole Home Electrical Services
Up to 80% of all power surges originate inside the home, according to NEMA. In other words, you don’t need a lightning strike to worry about your appliances getting fried. From the inputs on your television to the circuitry in your fancy new oven, just about any modern device needs surge protection. Jaffe Electric can install a whole-house surge protector for far greater peace of mind than relying on power strips.
Don’t be the next person to lose a thousand-dollar device because of an electrical surge! Jaffe Electric will add a whole-house surge protector to your electrical system for protection from indoor and outdoor power surges common in the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
Benefits of Whole-Home Surge Protection in DC, MD & VA
Many people don’t realize that power strips can only offer a limited amount of surge protection. They only protect the few things plugged into them, and only until the “sacrificial” metal shunt loses its effectiveness. We get enough power surges from lightning strikes and utility line problems in the DMV area that your power strip might only last a year or so.
Meanwhile, your home generates power surges from the inside many times a day. High-energy, motorized appliances—like the air conditioner or a hair dryer—shoot small surges into the electrical system whenever they run.
Whole-house surge protectors deflect excess current from the outside, such as from lightning strikes or when the power returns following an outage. They also protect devices throughout the home when one appliance sends a surge to the electrical panel.
Consider the alternative: if one of your electronics or appliances stops working because of a power surge, you probably wouldn’t guess the cause right away. You could lose hours and money on repairs before you realize you need to replace the device anyway.
Professional Installation of Whole-House Surge Protectors
Your new whole-house surge protector will be a small box mounted near the breaker panel. The protector detects excess electrical flow and sends it to ground. A light tells you that the device is working, so you never have to touch anything to get the protection you need.
