Whole Home Surge Protection
If you've ever experienced an electrical surge in your home you may know that it can be costly. Power surges and spikes can degrade your home's electrical wiring, electronic devices, connections and components.
What You May Not Know About Portable Surge Protectors
What you may not know is that a power surge or spike can happen along your phone lines, cable T.V. lines, or internet lines as well as your home's electrical power lines. Which means if you're using a portable surge protector that only has the capacity to protect a few of your electronics, all the other equipment in your home stays completely vulnerable.
At Total Electrical Solutions Ltd we recommend using whole home surge protection mounted on your main electrical panel.

What Causes Power Surges?
When an inductive load occurs (motors starting and stopping) it causes a transient voltage spike in your electrical system, however these spikes may only occur for a thousandth of a second. This can cause damage to all the sensitive electronic equipment in your house such as TVs, Computers and all your appliances over time, causing them to burn out and fail prematurely.
What We Can Do To Protect Your Home From Electrical Spikes & Surges
Install a panel mounted Surge Protector and protect all the clean power loads (electronics) in your house. A whole home Surge Protector will absorb the inductive loads that are created when loads such as the motor in your Refrigerator, Air-conditioning unit, Freezer, Hot Tub and Furnace start and stop thus protecting the clean power loads such as computers, washer, dryer, microwave, T.V., household appliances, LED lights and anything with a circuit board.
Power surges can be caused by a weather storm or a lighting strike which can enter your home in several ways such as through the phone lines, cable T.V., Christmas lights, or your electrical power lines.
