What is a Surge Protector?
A surge protector is an electrical device installed in homes, designed to safeguard electrical equipment and devices against voltage spikes or surges. Spikes are fast and random. These are short duration transient voltages having the potential of disrupting your electrical system at home and causing injury to your electrical devices. Surge protection blocks the voltage over a threshold that is considered safe. In the case of most US states, the threshold is approximately 120 V. This also prevents other undesirable outcomes like data loss and burned wires.
Surge protectors are available in various sizes and specifications. The larger and more complicated types are commonly installed in power distribution panels, communication structures, industrialized systems and process control systems. The smaller and less complicated types are ideally installed in residential buildings and offices.
How does a surge protector work?
A surge protector is equipped with several components that allow it to detect the occurrence of sudden voltage spikes. Upon detection, the device diverts the excess voltage to a grounding wire usually found inside the protector. It automatically shorts when the detected threshold is more than 120V to block or ground. By blocking the voltage, it then secures the electrical flow to home devices steering clear of component issues, reduced lifespan and permanent damage. The excess energy is then transported back to its source through the building’s return line. With a surge protector installed, the voltage is uninterrupted and maintained.
What are the advantages of Surge Protection?
Take your mind off any possible mishap by securing your home’s electrical system with surge protection. The protector prevents your home appliances, electrical devices and power tools from getting fried in case of a power surge. Shut out ideas of something catching fire resulting from over-voltage. And most importantly, having a surge protector installed by Sunrise Electric reduces your expenses from replacing broken/fried devices too often.
