Whole House Surge Protection in Minneapolis

A nearby lightning strike can send a tidal wave of electricity through your home’s wiring, burning out sensitive electronics such as computers, televisions and even items such as motherboards in modern refrigerators, washers, dryers and much more. You may think you’re protected with the many power strips you have in your home, but you’re not. You need whole house surge protection in Minneapolis, and Randy’s Electric has expert technicians on hand to install your system.

Many power strips are little more than extension cords, offering little in the way of true protection. Most of today’s electronics and appliances are extremely vulnerable to power surges and can cost thousands and thousands of dollars to replace.

Power Surges in Minneapolis

Most power surges are relatively minor, lasting for a fraction of a second. But powerful surges can send tens of thousands of volts through your home. Lightning and downed power lines are the chief sources of major surges, but sudden changes in electricity use by nearby factories, and even routine cycling of appliances in the home, can cause damage as well.

That damage may not be readily apparent, either. Even a minor fluctuation in power can reduce the lifespan of a device such as a microwave to where it stops working several months later.

Why You Need Whole House Surge Protection in Minneapolis

As the sophistication of today’s electronics has increased, so has the need for true protection against power surges. Any wave of voltage can cause irreparable damage; major surges can even result in electrical fires.

But you can substantially reduce the risk of damage by having a whole house surge protector installed in your home. These fantastic systems will protect your delicate electronics and minimize the chances of a fire. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that even if you are out of town you’ll be protected should your home experience a powerful surge.

In addition, a whole house surge protector will add value to your home as well. Any potential homebuyer will be even more attracted to your house when you have this invaluable device installed. Whole house surge protectors are reliable and inexpensive, made to fit nearly any budget.
