Whole Home Surge Protection – Installation, Service & Repair

House surge protectors are devices that help protect all electronic devices from power surges that occur in an electrical system. It is designed to prevent damage to your electronics by absorbing the excess energy from a power surge and diverting it away from your home’s electrical system. This helps to prevent damage to your appliances and electronics, as well as extend their lifespan.

Did you know that a lot of home insurance policies do not cover power surges? Or that to maintain the warranty on most electrical appliance or equipment you need to use a surge protector? You could be responsible for thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses if you don’t protect your home and equipment from power surges and lightning strikes. Protect your home with a surge protector installed by a licensed and insured electrical contractor from B&T. Call us today at 919-362-5846 or set up your installation appointment online.

We mentioned that whole home surge protectors divert the power surge away from your home, so let’s discuss it further in simpler terms. Whole house surge protectors are designed to only allow the required electricity for your home into it and will absorb any additional power, or surges from a lightning strike during a thunderstorm, for example.

Without surge protection, an electrical power spike, such as those caused by a direct lightning strike, can overload your breaker box and even start an electrical fire that can quickly spread to all areas of your home.
