Why Surge Protection?

The average household experiences upward of 20 or more surges every single day. They happen when high-draw equipment kicks on, when storms strike our area, and sometimes they just happen — as a result of utility power supply or otherwise. While the majority of these surges do little to nothing, each and every one of them carries the potential to do a lot of harm. A surge opens up your appliances — everything from the fridge to the television — to the potential for irreparable damage.

In other and simpler words, whole-home surge protection is the best way to avoid damage from power surges, which can protect your home from hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of damage each and every year.

Surge Protection FAQs

Ideally, you should have a whole-home surge protector installed at your main electrical panel. This will handle larger surges from utility disruptions and surges resulting from large appliances. You should also have point-of-use surge protectors to protect sensitive electronics like computers, modems, televisions, and game systems against smaller surges. Our team at Blind & Sons can recommend the best whole-home surge protector for your needs.

Surge protectors provide some protection against lightning strikes, but no surge protector can provide complete protection, especially if the strike is close to your home. To prevent damage, it is always best to unplug valuable appliances and electronics during a storm.

Outlet strips and overload protection devices serve a different purpose than surge protectors. While surge protectors guard against instantaneous surges on the power grid, overload protection devices are designed to protect wiring and prevent fires when the current capacity of the circuit is exceeded for an extended period. Ideally, your home should have both surge protection and overload protection on your most important circuits.

With the introduction of the 2020 National Electrical Code, surge protection is now required for all new electrical service installations, as well as anytime an existing electrical service is upgraded or replaced. The code requires a Type 1 or Type 2 surge protection device. If you are considering an electrical panel upgrade or rewiring services for your Ohio home, our team at Blind & Sons can install a whole-home surge protector at the same time.
