What is a Power Surge?
A power surge is when the voltage in your electricity spikes unintentionally. When this happens, your wiring, appliances or electrical devices can be broken or damaged. These surges can happen for many reasons that include:
- Power outages caused by storms or other weather issues.
- Downed power lines from collisions or accidents.
- Lightning strikes.
- Smaller surges can occur inside your home daily and can happen up to five times per day. These small surges will slowly cause damage to your wires and appliances.
Some causes for small, interior surges include:
- Large appliances, such as your furnace or air conditioner cycling on and off
- Surges can also be caused by smaller appliances such as dryers or power tools.
Why Should I be Concerned About Surges?
A large power surge can permanently damage your electrical devices or wiring. This could mean bad news for your computers or other important devices. Experiencing a surge also means that you will need to get your wiring repaired which is an unexpected cost most homeowners want to avoid.
Smaller surges like the ones that occur on a daily basis can also cause serious damage, however this damage happens over time and with repeated exposure to surges.

With professional surge protection services, you can guarantee that your electrical devices, appliances and wires are protected from the damages caused by unexpected surges. Our team will start by confirming your ground protection and developing a plan to work in your household to protect your wiring from outside surges.
