Surge Protection Installation in the Houston Metro Area
Did you know that power surges happen inside the home? When large appliances like the air conditioner or dishwasher start up, they send a small surge back into your electrical system. Surges can also enter the home from phone and cable lines. In other words, you need home surge protection in Houston for more than just lightning and electrical grid problems.
A whole-house surge protector covers all of your wiring and appliances, and the protection lasts infinitely longer than any plug-in strip. Imagine the fortune you can save by not having to replace your laptop or widescreen TV after the next surge.
Aaron’s Electrical Service can install a whole home surge protection device next to your service panel or outside your home, and we’ll do it for a low price. Call us at (832) 702-4263 or contact us online to request a free quote!
Reasons to Get a Whole-Home Surge Protector
Those power strips with surge protection offer a small fraction of the safety that a whole-home device can provide. Surge strips have a sacrificial metal strip that absorbs the shock until it wears out—which happens very, very quickly.
Power strips also only protect the devices plugged into them. A whole-house surge protector covers everything in the home, whether the surge was generated from the outside or from inside the home.
Electronic devices like TVs and computers aren’t the only things that can be damaged by surges, either. Modern kitchen appliances, security systems, thermostats, and anything else with a circuit board will be very susceptible to surge damage. Add up the replacement cost for all of those devices, and that’s what you can save with a whole-home surge protector!
Home Surge Protection in Houston, TX
Installing a whole-house surge protector is simple enough that Aaron’s licensed electricians in Houston can do the job in a matter of minutes. However, it’s a delicate and dangerous task that you should never try to DIY.
We’ll need to shut off all power to the house for a brief period of time. The surge protection device mounts on the wall near your breaker panel and connects to it at one of the breaker slots. That’s about all there is to do, but it requires professional-quality wiring to make sure you get the surge protection working correctly.
