Surge Protection from Pat Murphy Electric

Do you have expensive electronic equipment in your home, like a big screen TV, computers, stereo system, or a home theater? If so, you want them protected from electrical damage. Any of these items can be rendered useless from an electrical surge through your home. You’ve invested in enhancing your life through these products, so invest in protecting them from electrical damage.

Your Appliances Need Protection, Too

Items that come from the electronics store aren’t the only things in your home that need protection from electrical surges. Everyday appliances like your washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator contain circuit boards are also vulnerable. Imagine if one or more of these items were unusable due to an electrical surge. You and the rest of your family wouldn’t be very happy.

Where Do Surges Come From?

Most people believe that damaging electrical surges come only from lightning strikes. While it’s true that lightning can cause surges (even from up to two miles away from a strike hitting the ground), the most common cause of damaging electric surges come from right inside your home! Between 75-80% of all electric surges originate this way, but most of these electrical surges can be prevented by installing an electrical panel surge protector.

How to Protect Your Home

Plug-in surge protector strips are not enough and most are just expensive extension cords. They still can be overloaded by a large surge. Plus, heavy duty appliances and other items not plugged into them are still at risk.

Pat Murphy Electric installs a surge protection package right in your home’s electrical panel – directly at the source where all surges occur. Our licensed electricians can install surge protectors and electrical panel surge protectors to keep your appliances safe. When you protect your home this way, you’ll have supreme confidence that your expensive electronics and appliances stay safe from any kind of electrical surge.
