Whole-House Surge Protection for Your New Jersey Home
Power surges can seriously damage electrical circuits and break all manner of electrical appliances in the home. A single surge can wipe out TVs, computers, phones, refrigerators, and anything that commonly remains plugged in.
A whole-home surge protector can help by providing a significantly higher level of protection than plug-in power strips, and it can protect all your outlets simultaneously.

What Causes Power Surges?
Spikes in power supplied to your home happen when excess electricity disburses to the grid, or the power is momentarily interrupted, then turned back on. Although many associate power surges with lightning strikes, there are several possible causes:
- Lightning: Nearby lightning strikes can cause significant power surges, and although surge protectors can prevent some lightning damage, if the strike is too close, even the best surge protectors will fail.
- Utility switching: When the power company adds or removes generation capacity to meet power demands, it can create momentary power spikes.
- Maintenance problems: When utility equipment fails, or an accident interrupts power delivery, there can be fluctuations in the power supply.
- Internal surges: When large appliances in your home startup, the momentary sag in voltage can lead to a power surge, especially if you have old or undersized wiring, an overloaded service panel, or bad connections at the outlets or breakers.
Whole-home surge protectors offer enhanced protection for your most essential devices, and they’re installed directly to the primary service panel to protect all the circuits in your home at once.

What’s the Difference Between Whole-Home Surge Protectors and Buying Surge Protectors?
Many protect their most valuable electronics, for instance, computers, televisions, and game consoles, with plug-in surge suppressors, but is that enough?
Stand-alone surge protectors only protect the devices connected to them, leaving other appliances unprotected in the home, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and dishwashers. This can lead to costly and time-consuming repairs should a strong power surge occur.
Whole-home surge protectors are designed to simultaneously protect all the devices in your home. They offer superior protection against stronger power surges than most stand-alone surge suppressors. A combination of a whole-home surge protector and a plug-in surge protector for your essential devices will offer the best overall solution.
The whole-home surge protector will help manage more significant surges from utility switching, maintenance issues, or lightning strikes. The plug-in model will protect against smaller surges that the whole-home model may miss, such as motor startups in your home.
