Protect Your Home This Holiday Season with Whole House Surge Protection

by bpsupp19274

Most of the time, when homeowners hear about surge protection, they think of a power strip. While these are technically surge protectors, they aren’t the strongest. In fact, they are the least amount of surge protection you can have. To truly protect your home from a powerful surge, you want whole home protection in the form of a Type 1 or Type 2 whole-house surge protector.

The Difference

A power strip will cut power once a surge hits that particular outlet. The problem with this is that the surge has already entered your home, and any system, appliance or electronic item that isn’t plugged into its own power strip will be affected by the surge. Plus, the power strip doesn’t fully ensure that those items plugged into it will be fully protected – they may still be damaged if the surge is powerful enough.

Whole-home surge protection comes in two types: Type 1 and Type 2. Both re-direct electrical surges before they can enter your home’s electrical system, but the location of each type makes a difference. Type 1 surge protectors are installed on the main electrical line to your home, in front of the electrical meter. When the protector detects any kind of surge, it re-directs the overload of electricity to a safe ground within the component. This ensures that the surge never reaches your home. A Type 2 surge protector is installed just behind your electric meter and works the same way. This type of surge will also protect your home’s electrical system but the meter can become damaged in the case of a power surge. You can discuss with your Bell Plumbing and Heating expert which surge best fits your needs.

As we enter the holidays and add lights and decorations to our homes, the last thing you want to deal with is a power surge issue. Call our pros today and see how your home in Denver can benefit from a whole-home surge protector.
