WHOLE-HOUSE SURGE PROTECTION IN RALEIGH
The Dangers of Power Surges
Power surges happen when the electricity coming into your home or office exceeds the threshold of your electrical system. Because devices plugged into your outlets are designed to work within certain voltage ranges, a power surge can risk damaging or destroying them. If your devices are hit with a power surge, the excess power could easily burn them out, rendering them useless.
A power surge can end up costing some serious money. If something like an entertainment center or computer gets hit, you risk losing potentially thousands of dollars of equipment in under a second. This happens when your devices don’t have any sort of protection in place against a sudden surge in electricity.
Don’t wait until it’s too late! A power surge could happen at any time. Give CMC Electric a call today to protect your valuable electronics and appliances!
Common Causes of Power Surges
When most people think of power surges, the image of a thunderstorm overhead comes to mind.
However, there are several other things that can cause a power surge, such as:
- Bad or faulty wiring – If you live in an older home or if your house doesn’t have good wiring, it can cause a power surge. You can consult with one of our Raleigh electricians to learn if your wiring needs to be repaired or updated.
- Tree limbs touching the power lines – When trees grow too large, they run the risk of their branches colliding with power lines and transformers. If you have one or more trees in danger of hitting your power lines, you should arrange to get them trimmed back as soon as possible to avoid a power surge.
- Restoration of power after a blackout – While most people think of lightning strikes and inclement weather causing power surges, most people don’t think of the moment the lights come back on after a blackout. Because all the power to your home is being restored at once, the rush of electricity can cause a surge.
