Whole House Surge Protection Santa Barbara
Adding a whole house surge protection to your Santa Barbara home/business could be a “life savior”. Basically, it can save you money, time, and your valuable data stored in any device connected to electricity. Most people are not aware that electrical panels and circuit breakers do NOT protect you from surges. They only protect you from overcurrent. A surge is when the voltage of electricity is too great and it rushes through an electrical wire and device.
What can cause an Electrical Surge?
Electrical surges do not happen very often, which is why many people do not protect themselves from them. While not normally able to physically harm individuals, the biggest pain comes from damaged or lost computer data.
An obvious surge can come from the weather, such as a home being affected by lightning. Other examples are accidental surges sent by the electric company or through the electrical grid. Moreover, electric transformer accidents or malfunctions may send surges through your home. Finally, appliances may send small surges in your home when they are turned on.
Whole house surge protection is most popular when people install a new electrical panel in Santa Barbara. If that is your case inquire us about adding protection to it.
