Whole-Home Surge Protection in Old Bridge, NJ

Thanks to sensational news stories, most people associate the term “power surge” with dramatic lighting strikes, melted plugs, sparks, and hurricanes. With this context so readily available, most homeowners think power surges are rare and don’t take the prospect as seriously as they should.

As it turns out, small internal power surges happen dozens of times a day and often go undetected by homeowners. Every time you turn on a vacuum cleaner, hairdryer, smoothie blender, or another high-powered appliance, this causes a surge. And while it’s true that most electronic devices are built to withstand these small incidents, the cumulative effect can damage your electrical system and shorten the life of even the most stalwart of appliances without proper power surge protection. We don’t want you to fall victim to a very avoidable and dangerous power surge catastrophe. That’s why Arctic Air offers comprehensive whole-home surge protectors.

Learn more about how whole home surge protection can keep you and your family safe. Call 732 – 455 – 9110 or contact us online today.

Whole-Home Surge Protectors: What They Are and Why You Need One

Whole-home protectors are mounted to your electrical panel and keep a close watch on incoming voltage levels. If a surge occurs, it automatically adjusts the incoming power to a safe level before letting it through the gates and into your home’s wiring system.

Whole-home surge protectors are very literally named. They protect the internal wiring and appliances as well as your switches, outlets, and cable lines throughout your home. If you invest in whole-home surge protection, you can expect:

  • A longer useful life out of your electronics. Whole-home surge protection greatly reduces the chances of frying a circuit board, burning out a motor, or exposing other components to damaging heat and voltage. This protection can potentially add years to the life of your appliances.
  • Reduced risk of disaster-like incidents. Whole-home surge protection means you’re far less likely to incur a ton of damage from a severe power surge – the kind that causes melted plugs, sparking wires, and electrical fires.
  • Less costly surprise electrical repairs. The repair or replacement of fried electronics and the ripping out of walls to get to certain fixtures. And yet, this is what you could be facing after even one major power surge event. Whole-home surge protection heads this nightmare off at the pass.

Whole-Home Surge Protection FAQs

Do whole-house surge protectors really work?

Yes. On average, whole-house surge protectors stop 85% – 90% of excess voltage in its tracks. What’s more, their effectiveness compounds when used in conjunction with other safety devices, such as grounded power strips and plug-in surge protectors.

How much does a whole house surge protector cost?

 The average price nationwide for a whole-home surge protector is around $150. Depending on the size of your home and the make and model of the protector, prices can range from $100 to $800. Our experts will work with you to determine the best whole-home surge protector for your needs and budget.

Can you surge protect your entire house?

Yes, and whole-home surge protectors are exactly how that’s done. Unlike most plug-in surge protectors, which work to protect one plug or appliance, whole-home surge protectors head surges off at the pass by connecting straight to your electrical panel.

What type of whole house surge protector do I need?

The recommended minimum protection you should expect from a whole home surge protector is 40,000 amps – more than the average lighting strike – and many can handle much higher levels. Talk with one of our technicians to get a better handle on what you need.
