Surge Protection

Does it seem like every year you end up replacing a TV, Computer or Circuit Board in one of your home’s appliances? Is this something that can be prevented?

Positricity is your local Tampa Bay and Clearwater electrical professional. We are the experts in providing effective Surge Protection for homes and whole buildings. Power surges are a common occurrence, happening on average as many as 20 times a day. These bursts of electricity vary in voltage and are very unpredictable. This rapid increase in the voltage flowing through your homes wires can “zap” today’s modern appliances that rely on microprocessor technology. This makes, TV’s, computers, refrigerators, hot water heaters, pool pumps, washer/dryers, microwaves, stereos, and other electronic devices vulnerable to even slight surges. In the Tampa Bay area lighting is often the culprit, but power surges can also occur when trees fall on power lines or someone runs in to a power pole. While lightning may be the most destructive source of power surges, utility power surges occur daily and cause more potential damage than lighting. In most cases you may not even be aware of a power surge. The experts at Positricity offer a wide range of surge protector solutions for any size home or business.

Are you that person, running through your house in a lightning storm unplugging lights, TV’s, computers, and electronic devices?

If so, here’s why you should consider installing surge protection 

Why You Should Consider Whole House Surge Protection for your Home

While it’s a blessing to live in Florida, there’s a reason our wonderful hockey team is called “THE LIGHTNING”. Tampa is known as the “Lighting Capital of the World” for a reason. Our lives are enriched and made more enjoyable every day by the growing number of electrical devices we have access to. Protecting this growing number of valuable electronics and your wallet is why you should consider installing surge protection.
We buy insurance to protect us from unforeseen events. We may never use it, but we carry it for the peace of mind it brings. A surge protector is like having an extra insurance policy. You may even save money on your insurance by having a professionally installed surge protection system. Here is a list of just some of the expensive electronics you should consider adding a surge protector to your home or business to protect:

• Garage Door Operating Systems
• TVs, Home Theatre Systems, Sound Systems
• Refrigerators, Freezers, Washers, Dryers, Dishwashers
• Security Systems
• Motorized Blinds
• Printers, Faxes, Telephones, Cell Phones
• Echo and Google Home devices
• Computers, Modems, & Internet Routers
• Any Small Appliance, & Microwaves
• Low Voltage Lighting Systems

When you consider the cost of replacing or repairing any of the items above, a whole house surge protector makes a lot of sense.

Choosing the Right Surge Protection Solution for Your Home or Business

There are basically two types of surge protection, Point of Use, and Whole House. As it implies, point of use is a device that connects to your appliance at the electrical source. They typically can deal with surges up to 6,000 volts. The number of devices a typical home today makes installing point of use protection less practical. Whole House surge protection system protects your entire home by blocking transient surges that would enter your home through the electric supply. The expert electricians at Positricity can assess your homes requirements and recommend the right system for your needs.
