Power. It’s a great word. But despite the intrigue, there is such a thing as too much power.
In this case, we’re not referring to human nature. What we’re talking about is electrical power. The kind you use every day to save time and make your life easier. But don’t be lulled by the conveniences of electrical power. You can have too much of it—and it can be dangerous.
That’s why we use surge protectors in our homes. These devices will detect and divert power surges to protect everything and everyone inside. Not sure which type is right for you? That’s what we’re here for!
Electricity typically flows in a steady current. This means we can normally use all of our electrical appliances without any problems. But at random moments, the power can spike unexpectedly and surge through your system. Downed power lines are often the cause of these residential power surges.
If a surge takes place and your electric isn’t prepared to handle it, this can result in an electrical fire. The trick is to protect your system beforehand against unpredictable power surges—and that’s how Blanton’s can help.
Power surges can damage many different home appliances, including:
Anything that runs with a motor is vulnerable to power surges. Using the right surge protector, you can safeguard all of your investments.
You never know when a power surge can happen. But if you have the right surge protector, you won’t need to sweat it.
Finding the right product depends on your electrical needs, system layout and more. Our electricians at Blanton’s have years of evaluating systems and offering professional recommendations. We’ll be more than happy to examine your system and suggest which surge protector is best suited for your home.
No surge protector can offset the power of lightning. During a lightning storm, unplug your major appliances until the storm subsides.
Your home’s electric should be a luxury—not a danger. Partner with our team to make your home stronger than the surge and a safe place for all.
