Glen Burnie Surge Protection
Keeping Your Appliances & Devices Safe
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 Glen Burnie surge protection, you can count on Magothy Electric Company to deliver it to you.

Surge protection is something every home should have especially if the homeowner wants to preserve the quality of their appliances. The fact is that the electricity passing through a home is not always constant. It can go up and down due to power outages, downed lines or a strong power usage from the industrial sector. Although homeowners might not always detect these inconsistencies in their electricity, there are definitely disadvantages to this type of electrical problem. This is why most homes today are advised to install surge protectors in order to prevent damages that most homeowners do not anticipate. Following are some advantages of installing this device in the house.
Having a surge protector installed in a Baltimore home is definitely something that would increase its sale value. Prospective buyers would view this as one less thing to worry about and would have no problem shelling the extra cash needed.
Regardless of whether a person hires for microprocessor replacement or buy a new appliance, there’s no question that this is an unnecessary expense. Thousands of dollars could be wasted on something that could have been easily prevented by simple installation. Not to mention the amount of time and effort a person needs to spend on discarding and purchasing new items. Suffice to say, it would be a smart financial move for homeowners to install the surge protector instead of waiting for something like this to happen.
How Our Glen Burnie Surge Protections 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 home. Surge devices prevent that from happening. In fact, there is currently an increasing need for surge devices because high-powered devices are more sensitive when it comes to voltage spikes.
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.
The Different Kinds Of Surge Suppressors Include:
There are different kinds of surge suppressors including:
Plug-in Surge Protections
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. However, it is also imperative that you are aware of the limitations these protectors come with.
Preventing Voltage Spikes
Many people get their surge devices linked to one or several appliances and/or electronic devices. These usually involve bars equipped with reset switching and there is room for four or five 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.
