The average US home experiences about 2,200 power surges each year. While most are so minor as not to be noticed, over time, their accumulative effect can bring about an early end to your AC system, water heater, sound system, and any other system or device with a built-in microprocessor.
You know what else can damage or destroy that kind of equipment? A major one-time power surge…the kind that comes from a lightning bolt or the sudden return of electrical power following an outage.
Fear not: Bolt Electric has the answer.
Power strips with surge protection should be used as a first line of defense. And yet the amount of protection they provide is limited.
That’s why we also recommend a whole-house surge protector expertly installed by Bolt Electric. A whole-house surge protector can absorb up to 40,000 amps of electricity per incident. That greatly reduces the risk of equipment damage.
Why is that important? Well, among other reasons, most homeowner insurance companies don’t cover the damage caused by a power surge. So if one were to destroy or seriously damage your refrigerator or central AC system, your out-of-pocket expense could be considerable.
Whole-house surge protectors also reduce the risk of a home fire.
Contact Bolt Electric today to request installation of a whole-house surge protector. You’ll love the added protection and peace of mind it provides.
