Surge Protection by West Palm Beach Electrician

elcon_3Fortunately the worst of the summer storms and hurricane season is behind us. There is no time like the present to start thinking about next season. Storms are notorious for causing lightning that can and often does result in power surges. The surges come through the electrical lines running into your home and can damage appliances. If you want to prevent such damage from happening, it is a good idea to have a whole home surge protection system installed by a West Palm Beach electrician. If you haven’t heard about a whole house surge protector, give Elcon Electric a call to learn more.

A whole home surge protector is a small box of sorts that an electrician in West Palm Beach will install. The surge protectors can be purchased in a variety of sizes. The initial investment is typically less than five hundred dollars. When you think about a $2000 refrigerator and the thousands of dollars you have invested in your televisions, computers and electric appliances, that investment is nothing to the amount of money you will save by protecting the electric gear in your home.

There are surges all day long in your home. When you see the lights dim or flicker, that is the result of a power surge. It could be coming from the outside line or in your own home when something big like the air conditioner kicked on or the compressor on the fridge turned on. Believe it or not, regular small surges shorten the life of your appliances explains an electrician. West Palm Beach homeowners can save themselves thousands of dollars by having a surge protector installed that will regulate the power and prevent the small surges as well as the big ones caused by lightning. Give Elcon Electric a call today and schedule your surge protector installation.
