Surge Protection

Keeping Your Home or Business Safe with Surge Protection

Do you need surge protection in your home or office? The short answer: Yes. As of 2020, the National Electric code requires surge protection in residential and commercial buildings.

In addition to keeping your property safe, surge protection just makes sense. Power surges can happen unexpectedly during snow storms, thunderstorms, or as a result of downed power lines. Surges can also occur due to faulty wiring or electrical overload—when too much electrical current is passing through a single circuit.

With so many televisions, computers, cell phones, and other valuable connected devices and appliances in our homes and offices, the consequences of a power surge can be severe, including the loss of irreplaceable documents.

What to Expect: Surge Protector Installation

Having surge protection hard-wired in your property’s electrical panel is a larger-scale, more-permanent, and more-reliable version of the plug-in surge protectors you may already have in your home or office. The key difference: A surge protector installed by King Electric will help safeguard your entire property and the devices and appliances inside—even large appliances.

How King Electric Can Help

If you’re interested in surge protection for your home or business, call us today. A King Electric electrician will first conduct a thorough assessment of your property. Before work begins or agreements are signed, we will provide a detailed estimate and answer any questions you may have about the process.
