Have you ever stopped to think about how many electronic and electrical appliances you have in your Shelby County home? As you complete a mental inventory, start adding up the value of these items. It can easily climb to tens of thousands of dollars when considering HVAC equipment, home theater systems, and computers. Now think about how much you have invested in surge protection to protect these costly devices. For many people, the answer is nothing, which is shocking and potentially very upsetting. A lightning strike within a mile of your home, a fluctuation in grid power due to local industrial power consumption, or cycling of your HVAC equipment, clothes dryer, or refrigerator can create a hazardous power surge. Even a tree falling on a power line can result in a dangerous power spike.
If you are now nervous about when your luck will run out, take the uncertainty out of the equation and call 901-499-4744 to learn more about Memphis surge protection options. The licensed electricians at Rush Electric install many surge protectors in Memphis to protect the appliances, electronics, and electrical systems in their client’s homes.
Whole-home surge protection falls into two categories. First, there is a Type 1 device located where the electrical supply comes into your house at the electrical panel. These line-side protective devices offer the most complete protection for your devices and household wiring because all power must pass through the surge protector to enter the house. In addition, this device protects devices from the internal power surges that can be created when a large appliance with a motor powers on and off. Type 2 devices offer load center protection for only a sub-panel or single circuit, not the entire house.
