Eden Prairie Electrician Explains the Need for Electrical Surge Protection in Homes
Electrical power surges can be hazardous to a home and appliances
According to the Eden Prairie electrician, this is a dangerous and often deadly misconception. Not all surge suppressors are made alike and many are not designed to protect from electrical power surges. They are simply power strips that allow the user to plug in many items using the same outlet, often leading to power overload and damage to the home or items being plugged in.
The Eden Prairie electrician explains the two types of power surges which can enter the home and destroy a computer, TV or home appliance that functions with a circuit board. One is lightening and the other is caused by power interruptions or when someone one repeatedly turns the power on and off. During these power interruptions the surges can degrade the electronic components and cause permanent damage.
Another piece of advice from the Eden Prairie electrical contractor applies to purchasing adequate power surge protectors. They are not all made alike and many are not to be trusted to keep expensive equipment safe. Technicians with Norske Electric (www.electricianedenprairie.com/) suggest looking for words like UL rating of 1449; Clamping voltage at 120 volts (though UL standards say 330), absorbs at least 600 joules of energy, L-N, L-G, N-G, indicating surge protection for all lines into the home, and indicator lights to show the power strip is working and to signal when it needs to be replaced.
There is no fool-proof way to defend against electrical surge suppression, but following these guidelines provided by the local electrician will go a long way in avoiding costly repairs or replacement of expensive electronics and/or home appliances.
