Surge Protector Services St Louis
A surge protector is designed to protect against electrical devices from voltage spikes in the effort to safeguard you & your family or your business & employees. A surge protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by blocking or shorting to ground unwanted voltages above the safe threshold.
The Hoffmann Brothers Electricians can install surge protectors in either your St Louis area home or business. We always want to ensure safety and quality in any work that we do. Call Hoffmann Brothers for all your Surge protection needs at 314-664-3011.
What Causes a Power Surge?
Some of the most common causes of a power surge include:
- Operation of heavy-duty electrical appliances: When appliances like refrigerators, air conditioners, or elevators are turned on and off frequently, they use a large amount of energy.
- Smaller electrical devices and power tools: Devices like hair dryers and power tools can cause smaller, internal power surges because they have motors that continuously start back up again.
- External factors: Tree limbs touching a power line, a transformer blowing, or anything that can cause a power outage will cause an external surge once the electricity turns back on.
Risks Involved with Power Surges
Any item with a microprocessor will be affected by a power surge. This means a power surge will damage your cell phones, TVs, computers, microwaves, dishwashers and fridges. Their circuits will fry from large power surges and will degrade over time from lower-level surges, which will make them eventually fully fail.
Power surges don’t just damage your home—they also can cause your appliances and electronics to fail completely. Generators are great to temporarily power your home, but unfortunately, they will not protect your home when there’s a power spike or sag. To avoid the cost of replacing all your appliances and electronics, you should protect your home with a surge protector.
Surge protectors only work properly when installed and grounded by a licensed electrician. Have Hoffmann Brothers install a surge protector in your home’s service panel to protect your lighting, heating, air conditioning, plumbing system and appliances!
