If you’re like most of the homeowners we help, you’re suddenly interested in surge protection because you ran into an issue during the last power outage. That wicked hurricane fried your charging phone or computer and now you’re determined to prevent it from happening again!
Have you been unfortunate enough to leave your phone charging during a hurricane only to come back to a damaged device, fried from an unexpected power surge? Or was there a car crash on your block that struck a power pole— burning out your lightbulbs?
While surges don’t happen often, they can significantly wear down or permanently damage your expensive electronics, like your TVs, computers, appliances, and more.
Hiring an unlicensed electrician or general “handyman” to do electrical work in your home could leave you in the dark— or worse. Sure, the price may be right, at first, but the risks are great – including short circuits, damage to appliances, fire hazards, not to mention the risks related to an unlicensed worker getting injured on your property!
