How Surge Protection Works

Although many people know what surge protection, it's important to know exactly how it works, so that you can decide what type of surge protection is best for you. Generally speaking, a surge protector is designed to protect electronics and appliances from sudden spikes in the electrical system. A spike can occur during times when the power goes out and suddenly comes back on, or during a lightning storm when lightning strikes a part of your electrical wiring. When these events occur, the protector simply cuts off the overflow of electricity thereby protecting your electronics and equipment. The simplest example of this can be found in power strips which are now designed with surge protection features. Calling our team of expert Pittsburgh Electricians is the smartest thing to do when considering installing whole home surge protection.

Benefits of Surge Protection

The greatest advantage of surge protection is simple: It keeps your electronics from becoming damaged. Once you have a computer or appliance that has been hit by a power surge, the effects are devastating and total. In other words, your devices are completely fried. So the greatest benefit is that you make a small investment which can save you hundreds of dollars in lost equipment. In the case of a computer you will also save yourself the headache (and heartache) of lost information and files. Surge protection provides defense for your residential or commercial property that is unmatched. It gives you peace of mind.
