What Is a Power Surge?

Electrical surges are brief, typically only lasting less than a thousandth of a second, but the potential damage they can do to your home and electrical appliances is severe. They are an underrated threat that, unfortunately, not a lot of people are aware of.  As your local Bowie electrical contractors, we know only too well how potentially dangerous these electrical spikes are. There are many ways an electrical surge can occur. 

What Causes a Power Surge?

  • Switching on a high-power electrical device, such as a refrigerator, an air-conditioning unit, or a computer can create a brief spike in the electrical current
  • Lightning strikes are another common source of power surges; in fact, the lighting strike doesn’t have to be close to you to cause a spike
  • Tripped circuit breakers are one of the most common causes of power spikes
  • Short circuits in the wiring system are another of the most common causes of power surges

 Fortunately, wiring problems are easier to address. You simply need to call a local electrician in Bowie to solve the troublesome wiring in your home.

Are Power Surges Dangerous?

Power surges and electrical spikes are an underrated threat. When conditions aren’t “right”, such as when your home has faulty wiring, a brief surge can damage or even outright destroy electrical appliances. In a worst case scenario, the surge can start a fire.

What Is Surge Protection?

Surge protectors are widely promoted as a definite way to protect your home from an electrical surge. However, your average protector isn’t actually strong enough to secure your electronics and appliances. As a general rule, the bigger the surge protector, the better. Look for one that lists 600 joules or higher. That’s usually enough to protect your home from a surge as a result of a lightning bolt.

The best way to protect your home is a whole house surge protector that is hooked up to your electrical panel. These provide surge protection from the outside in. We promote these surge protectors and install them almost daily. Bailey & Shipp Electric has highly trained residential and commercial electrical contractors. Our reliable team of Bowie electricians will help you properly secure your home from the dangers of electrical spikes and surges.
