Imagine saving for a year to buy your new flat screen TV and home theater system. You go to the store and pick it up and install everything. Nothing better than watching your new TV now. What an experience! All your friends are coming over now just to experience the quality of your new TV and system. You are the talk of the neighborhood.
You’re sitting down, relaxing, and watching this blaze of glory and you hear a noise. A quick crackle, a quick pop, and the lights go off and so does your TV.
You look around in utter bewilderment, you look at your TV and you see a little smoke coming out the back. Uh oh! Guess what just happens? You just got a surge!
Your pride and joy, the TV that you worked so hard for just took a dump in one second! Guess what? Your warranty won’t cover surges. All that hard earned money was just flushed down in the drain. When your power comes back on, you notice that your stereo and computer does not work either. Your house is getting hot too. Guess what? The surge hit all of your appliances.
As crazy as this may seem, we have seen these hundreds of times. A surge can literally destroy all electrical components in your home.
But if you invest in a whole house surge protection, you can help prevent these problems. Switched Electric have many options when it comes to choosing the right surge protection units.
A surge is an abnormal or spike in voltage and current in your electrical system. Your electrical system can only handle so much and when this spike comes through it can damage your electrical system and everything that is tied into your system, including items that are plugged-in regular outlets.
Surges can come from within if there is an unseen electrical problem. Surges can come from the utility, and they can come from lightning storms.
Did you know that you are more likely being hit by a surge from your Power Company than you do from a lightning surge? Power surges occur when something boosts the electrical charge at some point in the power lines. This causes an increase in the electrical potential energy, which can increase the current flowing to your outlet.
