Households have more electrical demands now than ever before. From home appliances to small gadgets that need regular charging, outdated electrical systems can’t handle modern demands. As your electrical system tries to provide enough electricity for your home, you may experience a power surge, which can destroy electrical gadgets as well as your electrical wiring.

Professionally installed surge protection will protect your appliances, laptops, and gaming systems that require electricity. Central Oregon Heating can provide surge protector installation in Bend, Oregon; we can measure your daily electricity needs and install surge protection to protect your personal belongings and any sensitive information against a power surge.

What Causes a Power Surge?

There are a few different reasons you may experience a power surge. The first is the way we’ve already mentioned: your home has higher demands than your existing electrical system can keep up with. In the technological age, this is not an uncommon problem.

Sometimes, this type of power surge occurs without you realizing it. If one outlet suddenly stops working, or if you go to turn on your coffee pot and it won’t switch on, you might have experienced a power surge.

A power surge could also occur during a storm. One lightning strike can send 72,000 amps of electricity into your home when the typical amount of use is only about 300 amps.

Don’t develop a false sense of security if it doesn’t storm very often where you live. It only takes one lightning strike to fry your entire system and leave you in the dark.

You could experience a power surge even without a lightning strike. If your town’s power grid can’t keep up with increasing demand, it could cause transient voltage that shoots straight to your circuit breaker. You have no way of knowing when it might happen, and your electrical appliances run the constant danger of shorting out without notice.

Getting surge protector installation in Bend, Oregon, will provide the level of protection you need.

Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Surge Protector

If you’ve gotten by with just a power strip until now, consider yourself lucky. You may not realize it, but power strips are a single-use item. If you experience a power surge and still use the same surge protector, you run the risk of losing everything plugged into it during the next power surge.

A whole-home surge protection device goes on your main circuit breaker panel. It evens out electricity levels whenever there’s a power surge. The cost of installing a whole-home surge protector is far more reasonable than the cost of replacing every appliance, gadget, and lightbulb in your house after a power surge.

Protect Your Gadgets With a Surge Protector

When was the last time your kids got through the day without relying on electronic devices for schoolwork and to talk to their friends? If you work from home, you probably have sensitive information on your computer. One power surge could ruin your whole family’s day.

There are two types of home surge protectors to choose from:

  • Type 1 can handle anything, from a cozy bungalow to an entire apartment building. They are most commonly installed along with the original construction because they wire directly to the main breaker box.
  • Type 2 models are suitable for single-family homes with an existing electrical system. Because they are much smaller, they are more affordable, and they are simply installed inside the existing electrical panel. You can choose to use a type 2 surge protector for part or all of your home.

Since different homes have different power needs, you should rely on the knowledge of a professional electrician to determine which type of whole-home surge protector is the best for your needs.

Don’t Risk It When It Comes to Surge Protection

You can’t predict a power surge, but you can protect your home and your electronics from permanent damage. A whole-home surge protector prevents damage from a surge caused by your local grid, a lightning strike, or an outdated electrical system. Homeowners who try to cut corners by neglecting to install surge protection end up paying thousands to replace all their home electronics.

Central Oregon Heating can help you choose the right type of surge protection for your home so you never end up with destroyed electronics and faulty wiring due to a power surge.
