Protect your whole house from harmful electrical surges! Dollens Electric can install a whole-house surge protector in your electrical panel, for the appliances in the home. A surge protector can cut the level of power supply to an appropriate level. Whenever there is an upsurge of power supply into the home’s electrical panel. Your whole-house surge protector will protect the sensitive electronics in your home around the clock, leaving you with peace of mind.

Whole House Surge Protection

Many people get their surge protectors linked with one or several appliances and/or electronic devices. These usually involve bars equipped with reset switching and there is room for 4 or 5 plugs in most cases. Such bar can plug into a regular electrical outlet. If too much electricity is supplied through this outlet, that bar will automatically click off to protect the appliances, which are plugged in with it.

As you can understand, this is for just one outlet only. Additionally, the protection is meant only for the particular items that are connected to that bar. Nevertheless, having the whole house covered against   electricity surge doesn’t mean you have one of such devices linked to each outlet in the house.

For appropriate surge protection for your whole house, you’ll require a protector wired into the electrical panel. Such devices are a bit tough to find. Still, in most cases, an electrician can get you one from a vendor or manufacturer selling electrical supplies to professionals

Usually, there are 2 varieties. While a variety comes with wires stemming from the unit’s back, the other one comes with side outlets. Many units have overall voltage capacity of 500 watts. Additionally, these units come with audible alarm as well as warning lights. Getting such a unit installed in a home involves expensive propositions. Still, a whole house   protector can provide you with the guarantee that your home and its inhabitants get decent protection against power upsurge.
