A power surge protector will also protect your home’s electrical system. For instance, in the event of an internal power surge, the protector will send extra electricity to the electrical breaker panel. The electrical breaker will shunt the surge, safeguarding your home’s electrical system.
At Beck Electric, Generators & Plumbing, our surge protectors are usually whole-house surge suppressors that protect electrical systems against internal power surges. We usually install the whole home surge protection in the circuit breaker panel. We also offer external surge protectors that protect electrical systems from power surges caused by power line issues and lightning.
You should let us install a new surge protector in your home if:
- Your current surge protector is old
- Your current surge protector is overloaded
- You see a green or red blinking light on the outside of your current surge protector
- The joule rating of your current surge protector is less than 600
