Where do power surges come from?

Outside your home:

  • Electrical storms
  • Hydro company transformer failure on the hydro poles
  • Hydro line collisions: When high voltage hydro lines touch in a storm; the collision sends a surge down the line in both directions toward your home and back down the line toward the transformer.

    Inside your home:

    Power surges regularly occur inside your own home. These surges are much lower in voltage and gradually can damage your electronic circuits.

    They are caused by large equipment cycling on and off— like your air conditioner, washing machine, fridge, freezer & furnace.

    How does a power surge damage equipment?

    If the spike exceeds an appliance’s normal operating voltage requirement, it generates heat. This heat damages the circuit boards and electrical components in the appliance. A power surge can be devastating to sensitive electronic equipment or any product that has circuit boards or chips.

    STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR WIRING, EQUIPMENT AND APPLIANCES FROM DESTRUCTIVE POWER SURGES:

    1. Professional verification of your grounding system in your home

    Panel protection and plug-in surge bars are useless in an ungrounded home. Surge protection devices rely on your home’s grounding to work. Therefore it is important to have a professional verify your grounding system.

    2. Panel Surge Protection

    Panel surge protection at your panel is your first line of defense for your wiring, appliances and equipment. Panel Surge protection protects you from external surges caused by storms and transformer trouble.

    3. Surge Bars

    Surge bars are available with a wide range of prices and effectiveness. They are designed to protect individual devices that are  plugged into the surge bar.  A surge bar is designed to take a specific number of surges.. If your surge bars indicator light is not working uou are no longer protected.
