Lightning seasonIt's thunder & lightning storm season in Eastern CT! The storms usually bring relief from a spell of hot, humid weather. Most of us enjoy watching nature's light show. Unfortunately, these electrical storms can cause a lot of damage. Every summer, we replace well pumps and other equipment for homeowners because they get damaged by the surges in electricity. TVs, computers, laptops & microwaves that get fried also have to be replaced. Add in professional plumbing, electrical and heating home repair bills, and the damages amount to THOUSANDS of dollars.
Whole home surge protection vs. surge stripsYou don't receive complete surge protection from those outlet strips. Most of the time, those strips only serve to provide additional power sources, NOT surge protection. If they ARE rated for surge protection, they only protect the appliances that are plugged into that strip. They will not protect the larger equipment in your home such as your well pump, well tank, water heater, boiler, furnace, or kitchen appliances.
Whole home surge protection is a unit that is installed directly into your electrical panel. Installation should only be done by a professional, licensed electrician.
