Baltimore Surge Protection Professionals

Surges are the sudden unexpected spikes in voltage. They travel throughout the home’s electrical system. In some cases, surges can come from within the home such as turning on the dryer or sending a document to your fax machine. Other surges can come from the outside of the home such as in the case of lightning strikes, downed power lines, and utility switching. In any case, when you need Baltimore surge protection, you can count on Magothy Electric Company to deliver it to you. Call your Baltimore Electrician before your electrical components become “fried”.


Investing in Surge Protection

Protect your appliances and devices from voltage spikes by using high-quality protectors. Voltage spikes usually occur when lightning strikes or when there is faulty wiring. They can cause damage to your programmable appliances and equipment and even cause fires. That’s why surge protectors are necessary.


How They Work

Surge devices work by blocking voltage spikes to a less dangerous threshold and preventing damages from happening to your devices. The normal threshold of electricity is 120 volts. Anything higher than that can cause damage to your appliances inside your Baltimore home. Surge devices prevent that from happening. There is an increasing need for surge devices because high-powered devices are more sensitive when it comes to voltage spikes.


Types of Surge Protection

There are different kinds of surge suppressors:

  • Meter
  • Electrical
  • Plug-in

The meter and electrical surge suppressors protect from outside electrical interference. Meanwhile, a plug in suppressor has a built-in alarm system.


Whole Home Surge Devices

Whole Home Surge Protection shields your home’s appliances from getting damaged due to excessive electricity flow. A surge device also saves your home from catching a fire caused by the overflow of power supply. But it is also very imperative that you are aware of the limitations these protectors come with.


Preventing Voltage Spikes

Many people get their surge devices linked with one or several appliances and/or electronic devices. These usually involve bars equipped with reset switching and there is room for 4 or 5 plugs in most cases. Such bars can plug into a regular electrical outlet. If too much electricity is supplied through this outlet, that bar will automatically click off to protect the appliances, which are plugged in with it.
