Home Surge Protection

A quote from Mister Sparky Electrician Houston with a quotation mark A quote from Mister Sparky Electrician Houston with quotation mark close

Americans spend approximately $1,200 a year on electronics. All it takes is one sudden volt of electricity through an unprotected house to cause thousands of dollars worth of damage. This is why it makes sense to invest in whole home surge protection with Mister Sparky.

Although Mister Sparky uses a top-quality home surge protection system, it can only be effective with a good grounding system. Our team of expert electricians can inspect your grounding system to ensure that it meets the proper standards to keep your electronics safe from dangerous power surges.

Call us at (281) 599-9473 to learn more about our Surge Protection services and how you can protect your valuable electronics.

What is a power surge?

A power surge occurs when the line voltage goes higher than nominal and stays there longer than ten milliseconds. This can damage appliances and electronics including computer equipment and peripherals; electronic equipment such as stereos and TVs, household appliances including washers, dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers, and more. In other words, any electronic device that contains a microprocessor is vulnerable to damage from transient voltages.

Surges occur when devices with motors such as refrigerators and hair dryers shut off. Suddenly the energy these devices were consuming is redirected elsewhere in the form of excess voltage. Surges also happen when the power company switches power from one geographic area of the grid to another to meet demand fluctuations. Thunderstorms can be the most destructive cause of power surge problems.

Why are Surge Protectors Important?

There are several reasons why power quality has become such an important issue:

  1. Today’s computer chips are far more dense than they were even a few years ago, and subsequently, much more sensitive to even slight surges.
  2. Most homes and offices are using more pieces of equipment than ever before. Each time an electric device is turned on, transient voltages may be generated.
  3. More microprocessor technology is being used than ever before.
