There are two basic types of electric surge protection: point of use and whole house. Point of use are plug-in surge protectors and are great to have around the house, but you probably don’t have them for appliances such as fridges, microwaves, or installed with every electronic device plugged in your house and usually only handle up to 6000 volts. All of the devices not protected are susceptible to power surges, which a normal home can experience 20 power surges or more per day. A whole-house surge protector is designed to protect your home against power surges and protects all devices. Whole home protectors are devices are installed at the meter or electrical panel and require the installation by a licensed electrical contractor. Synergy Electric has the experience to perform a quality install of your whole home surge protection that will last and protect all of the valuable electronics plugged in.
