A power surge may only last a millionth of a second, but in that time, it can carry tens of thousands of volts through your system. It’s enough to fry circuit boards, crash hard drives, and ruin sensitive electronics. But not all store-bought surge protectors live up to their name – don’t count on power strips or circuit breakers to safeguard your wiring system or the delicate electronics and larger appliances connected to it. Count on our team to protect them with our whole house surge protection services.
Power surges are also very common. Also called “transient voltages,” they can occur more than 100 times a month, especially when a temporary voltage spike travels throughout an entire electrical, phone, network and or cable system. These can be external (from inclement weather or utility work) or internal (from devices inside the home). While the latter is more common, you need full protection from both kinds of surges!
Power strips are often used to extend outlets, but many of them do not provide the level of surge suppression needed to protect electronics. They may only offer only low-level surge suppression, leaving them open to costly surge damage. Even the best store-bought surge protectors don’t live up to their name – don’t count on power strips or circuit breakers to safeguard your wiring system or the delicate electronics and larger appliances connected to it. Count on our team to protect them with our whole house surge protection services.

A power surge can come from internal and external sources. Internal surges happen when devices with motors kick in or shut off, diverting electricity to and from other appliances. External power surges are commonly caused by lightning, damaged utility lines, utility grid transfers, and even planned power outages. If you’re in London or Southwestern Ontario, contact the J.D. Patrick team today about having a licensed electrician install a whole-house surge protector in your home to protect it from all possibilities.
To protect every part of your home from both internal and external surges, we use Whole Home Surge Protective Devices (SPDs). These stop high-power surges that could overwhelm plug strips and damage connected your electronics. SPDs also provide surge suppression for important items not compatible with point-of-use power strips, including your HVAC and appliances.
